Yeah agree, and hopefully it means accecss to the junior development areas in Liverpool and Campbelltown.Liverpool needs a stadium.
Huge growth area, a major CBD within greater Sydney. Airport will be nearby, major commercial development through the roof + residential growth spiralling further South West. Young families - potential to capture huge population of young people. The dogs had the foresight to plan our centre there 20 years ago - it fell through - imagine what we could have today if it got up.
Liverpool is the answer for the dogs long term future. It’s a stone’s throw from Bankstown - right next to Moorebank Rams...
Not sure what all the fuss is about...
Thanks. That only displays a subscription page but I’ll take your word for it. So in the future, if the Dogs do consider a home in Liverpool it’s likely to be a lease of someone else’s site like Stadium Australia - or is there still room to build a stadium adjacent to Whitlam? I haven’t been out that way for years so not sure how big it is and if there’s still unused land there?
"The 35,000 sqm block is located just 16km from both Campbelltown and Parramatta in what would be an ideal location for a second western Sydney stadium. Owned by the Canterbury Leagues club, the Hume Highway site is adjacent to the Whitlam Leisure Centre."
Thanks Wendy."The 35,000 sqm block is located just 16km from both Campbelltown and Parramatta in what would be an ideal location for a second western Sydney stadium. Owned by the Canterbury Leagues club, the Hume Highway site is adjacent to the Whitlam Leisure Centre."
So where would the stadium go, where Hillier Oval is? Existing car parking doesn’t look that big if it’s a ~25k seat stadium. Bulldog Park is probably also on the title. Looks tight to fit everything that would be needed?
Thanks. Yep better perspective. Plenty of room overall but agree - poor use of space thus far. So Canterbury Leagues owns the land - but Whitlam, assume that’s council and they pay rent to the League Club?
In all seriousness it does look tightPedestrians can cross the road for all I care, this is footy
But seriously, to make this work, the Whitlam Centre would probably need to be bulldozed
Bullshit mate, there’s more Bulldogs fans in the Liverpool, Campbelltown and Camden districts than there is Tigers fans!liverpool is shit house, alot of dogs supporters live no where near liverpool, alot are near Parramatta and Hills District. Lets hope we keep ANZ and Bankwest
