That's why I posted it, it's so stupid you have to laugh lol
I did read about that, think they were from Hong Kong specifically. At this stage their initial stadium proposal in Loftus was knocked back given the land they specifically wanted allocated by council. Puts that proposal in some doubt or at the very least delays it I would imagine.
That wouldn't make any sense though as Loftus is in Sharks territory. In any event unless it is a 30,000+ stadium it's not worth building and I don't see a HK outfit stumping up $400m for that.
St George Camel Jockeys
It’s a massive company. 400m could be a good investment for them. They are trying to build a presence in aus I believe. I think they started with the small sponsorship but they probably want the stadium named after them
And the bit about Loftus being in Sharks territory.......
Fucking cunts i dug a hole in my backyard found half a clothes peg and a broken drill bit.
The team proposed was a Sutherland shire based team, an area with huge amount of footballers, you should know being in Oatley They might keep trying to build a stadium if that’s their desire. Or they could just build out in GWS where they own billions of $$ worth of land and try compete with WSW
I think you are missing the point. This was a discussion about a mob from HK building a stadium in Loftus for the Dragons. The Sharks own Loftus not the Dragons so it would be counter intuitive for a stadium to be built in that suburb to assist the Dragons. And yes I do live in Oatley and know the area.... Doesn't matter how much money a company has they don't waste it on a whim. If they can't get their investment back they won't spend and $400+m for a stadium requires a lot of games to be played to get their money back. If they don't spend that kind of money then it won't fit the stadia policy and won't be approved. So, the bottom line is it isn't going to happen.
I was the one who first mentioned the Chinese developer building a stadium and it was for a new a league team, not an NRL team.
Sorry, clearly we have drifted off target. Started as a St george thing and now an a-league thing. I'll leave the soccer stuff to those who care.
Looks like provisional approval already granted. Couldn't attach the link myself but there is an SMH article on Oct 18 if you Google 'SMH Southern Expansion gains council approval'
