If its 50k then its only about 8-10k more than what the Gabba already is. if you are going to re-build the whole thing, you'd think they should increase the capacity by at least 15-20. Subiaco only held about 45k but Optus holding 60k is a huge boost.
Anyone else think that watching footy at Marvel is infinitely better with the roof open than closed. Especially in afternoon games it is always dark, whereas this weekend when it was open it looked better.
has the Great Britain issue been resolved? And would BCCI hand over control? Because I could never ever see BCCI ever doing that
It'd also mean West Indies players would have to split up into their nations (if they qualified)
my guess would be they keep the Gabba until then and use it for the cricket and once the games are finished, the new stadium gets refurbished if needed, and is then used for cricket from then on. If they end up using the Gabba as the main stadium then the cricket will have to probably be played...
Marvel Stadium I just find it a soulless concrete jungle. Only thing going for it is the roof which is good for cricket but when it is used for footy on a sunny day it just annoys me and I’m not sure why.
