Sub­ur­ban footy push

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

THE push to get fund­ing for the NRL’s sub­ur­ban grounds con­tin­ues with some pow­er­ful govern­ment and op­po­si­tion fig­ures want­ing to get on board.

It would be out­side of the govern­ment’s com­mit­ment to build a new Al­lianz Sta­dium and re­build ANZ Sta­dium at Syd­ney Olympic Park.

Spend­ing money in the lead-up to next year’s elec­tion on the out­dated fa­cil­i­ties at Brook­vale Oval, Bel­more, Shark Park, Pen­rith and Le­ich­hardt Oval is seen as a much smarter move to win votes across the Syd­ney metropoli­tan area.
