Opinion: Moving to a stadium in Dandenong is the right move

The City of Greater Dandenong Council has recently employed Deloitte Australia to complete a feasibility review and business case for a 15,000 seated stadium in the heart of the South East – Dandenong – just around the corner from the metro station.

Home to four different clubs across three different sporting codes, AAMI Park has hosted Melbourne City FC crowds since the club’s inception, but fans have begrudgingly shared the venue with our biggest rival, Melbourne Victory, and most recently Western United at times as they build their long-awaited stadium.

No A-League club should have to share their home stadium with a direct opponent, let alone their largest rivals. Could you imagine if Sydney FC began playing their home games at Bankwest Stadium? I highly doubt Western Sydney would be happy about that predicament.
