Why do the NRL play on ovals if it so bad as you say? !!!!

Yes and why shouldn't that change and get the best for all concerned.
Have you ever watched Soccer or League on an oval stadium?

Your too far away from the game in most cases.

Anyways common sense prevailed. ANZ in Homebush is being made permanently rectangular.

Putting the codes that use it most first.
Which is the way it should be.
Redeveloped ANZ Stadium may be put on hold.

Doesn't really mean much..

Would only be a 5 month delay if it does occur.

When you think about it.. how mental was it to schedule it in July anyway.
Wouldn't you wait to footy season is complete than start

You Australian Fairy League fans never quit.
Who wants to put a bet on that both ANZ and the Sydney football stadium will both get upgrades?

ANZ upgrade will 100% happen. And so will the the Sydney football stadium rebuild.

You still 100% certain regarding the ANZ Stadium redevelopment?

The Premier doesn’t appear to be 100% committed. See for yourself. lol

ANZ Stadium WILL remain in oval configuration and available to the AFL and cricket. Wise decision Premier. =D

Premier pulls the plug on stadium refurb but will keep Powerhouse move
By Michael Koziol
May 31, 2020

The Berejiklian government has dumped its controversial plan to redevelop ANZ Stadium and will redirect the $800 million saving to a new $3 billion Infrastructure and Job Acceleration Fund for "shovel-ready" projects to reboot the state's shattered economy.

Ms Berejiklian had originally wanted to knock down and rebuild ANZ Stadium but instead went to the election promising to refurbish the 85,000 seat oval venue into a 70,000 seat rectangular one. The rebuild of Allianz Stadium at Moore Park is already underway and remains ongoing.

The decision, taken by the Premier and her core leadership group, wards off internal division over what projects to jettison given budget constraints created by the pandemic.

Senior Liberals said there was agreement it had to be one or the other. But even after a $3 billion saving from the wage freeze and $810 million from abandoning the stadium refurbishment, they were well short of the $20 billion that could be wiped from the state's coffers by the pandemic. "That's $4 billion down, $16 billion to go," one senior Liberal said.

The tender for the stadium redevelopment had already progressed to a shortlist, with Multiplex, Watpac and Laing O'Rourke all vying to undertake the project. The government was due to award the design and construction contract in June.

But Deputy Premier John Barilaro said an "unprecedented crisis calls for an unprecedented recovery and redirecting funding from Stadium Australia to job-creating infrastructure builds is the right thing to do for the people of NSW".

I'm happy today.

The AFL requested ANZ Stadium stay in oval configuration for the AFL's and cricket's needs in Sydney. We can still play blockbusters and finals at Sydney's biggest stadium and the NSW taxpayers like myself are saved from a monumental waste of our hard earned dollars. Great result for all, particularly sports in NSW. :thumbleft:

Oh and cheer up pal. We just got to learn to share the infrastructure in Sydney.

Maybe you can now pray for a second wave for some perverse reasoning. Personally I'm quite happy the RL is back and C-19 is on the run. But that's just me pal!!!!!!
