What to expect in Twickenham at Twicken Ham
Posted May 19, 2018 07:08:30In a bid to attract more visitors to the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 2018, the Melbourne City Football Club is planning to build a new indoor stadium for the upcoming 2018 season.
The team is aiming to have the new ground ready for the start of the 2019 season and is now looking to raise $60 million to do so.
The club’s CEO and Chairman, David Miller, said the aim was to get a venue up and running and help the club attract more people to its grounds.
“It’s something that we want to be able to do for our club, but also for the city of Melbourne,” he said.
“We’re trying to create a unique place to play footy.”
“I’m sure there will be some challenges, but the thing that we’re looking at is a venue that will be a good fit for the team and a venue for the fans.”
The ground has the capacity of about 2,000 to 2,500 people so it’s a good venue for our team and we’ll be able get that done in the next two to three years.
“That’s the plan.”
Melbourne City FC has plans to build the new stadium in the redeveloped old Twicken Hill Road site.
It will also be a new venue for a future expansion of the city’s footy ground.
“This is the first time that we’ve built an indoor stadium, but we’ll certainly be bringing our existing ground into the new facility,” Mr Miller said.
Melbourne is currently home to two of the best footy teams in the world.
Melbourne Storm and the Western Bulldogs.
