Socceroos back to Adelaide?

Postby Stuckey Thu May 12, 2016 1:25 pm

THE State Government is prepared to pay $2 million in a bid to host the Socceroos and Japan FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifier at Adelaide Oval on October 11.

Given the date of the game it ties in to the start of the HAL season quite well. Hopefully AU could secure their "marquee" game at AO vs MVFC around the same time.
This could possibly make it justifiable to "re-configure" Adelaide Oval slightly and put a temporary stand on the pitch bringing everyone closer to the action.

Last i read was it was a bidding war between vics (mcg) and sydney (anz). Even if we put more money upfront there is no way they would take it away from the east coast
