Fox Sports would be pushing for Allianz upgrade, as a more filled out stadium is more marketable to sponsors/advertisers. When you are paying $1b to the NRL, you have some say

Anyway, thanks great news! If SydFC leichhardt gets a great turnout and great atmosphere, it will help boost its attractiveness for Tigers games
Fox are pushing for a return to suburban grounds and Leichhardt is one of their preferred venues. They try their best to hide them with camera angles, but they are not happy with sparsely filled venues with so many empty seats.

What would $5 million buy? What are the priorities?

Doubtful this would happen. No one wants Allianz re-built other than the lazy and corrupt SCG trust that just want free money.

The SCG trust has convinced the government that the SCG is no longer safe and is a disaster waiting to happen.
The SCG trust haven't convinced anyone of anything yet! They also had a spare $80 million to spend on ridiculously oversized TV screens yet had no money for the urgent safety requirements despite knowing about the shortcomings? That's practically criminal levels of negligence.

In the end 3 teams play out of Allianz, and maybe one concert a year. Compared to ANZ which hosts several clubs plus all the country's marquee matches in any code.
I agree with the fact that ANZ should be the priority, but the Trust has succeeded in swaying the government.
They haven't succeeded yet, unless you work in the Premiers department and have an inside scoop..? Feel free to PM if so.

Even the Roosters, SFC and the Waratahs don't want a brand new stadium, just a renovated one.

Why would Fox want an upgrade to a stadium that only one team (with poor crowds) uses, rather than the ground which 5-6 clubs use, plus Origins and grand finals...? Plus their preference for some suburban grounds to get some cash too.

The NRL and FFA have even joined forces and contacted Gladys directly, with signed letters from the CEO's of both governing bodies and the CEO of each club that plays at ANZ asking for ANZ to be prioritised. They threaten to pull out of lucrative agreements if these promises aren't kept.

Would be interesting to see. Corporate boxes are usually the problem with suburban venues and would probably yeild an immediate return, but I'm not sure where they could extend them at Leichhardt. Maybe on each corner of the grandstand.

Building anything in that electorate is near impossible ,I am sure the greens and tree hugers will put a stop to much building there ,nothing will happen at Leichhardt and if there is it will be minimal everyone just has to realise it unfortunately.

The council is one of the merged ones and Darcy has aligned himself with the liberals, rather than the greens, this time. I can only hope it's going to be an improvement.

Dont know about that Snake. Just about the only thing that has been not developed in the inner west is the site of the old Balmain Leagues Club.

Wests Tigers have never played the Dogs there. Or the Broncos and Titans if memory serves.

Have never played Souths at Cambo either.

IIRC we got crunched 6-36 or something like that. My only memory, apart from those awesome jumpers, is Luke Covell converting the only try from the sideline. But I could be wrong.
