The stadium was set to go at 1160 Sayers Road Tarneit. This is on the western fringe of the suburb and really Melbourne. This was reported widely in various media reports but looking into this address, found that Grand Central Estate has that particular area marked for a town centre with no room for a 15,000 seat soccer stadium.

So further investigations has found the stadium will be erected here, bounded by Leakes Road, Sewells Road and the Melbourne to Geelong Rail Line. Access will then most likely be by Leakes Road.



This is quite interesting :think:

How is Western United's fully funded stadium coming along?

In their original winning bid Western said they would have the $150 million venue up and running for their third season in the league, due to kick off in the spring of 2021.
It will never get built now! Maybe a training base might get built if the club still exists in 2-3 years, The club has blown it! They have no fans and no home, the pandemic also has come at the worse possible time for them to justify it.

Just from google, pretty much the only thing to mention the stadium from the past 6 months. Seems to know their stuff too.
6 months or so ago, local Wyndham paper boasted that "soil testing" had been completed and that building was ready to commence. Living nearby i visited the site a month or so ago and there's nothing but wide and flat open paddocks.

Just doubt it will ever get built now and doubt they'll survive at Knights Stadium long term. Were to tap into the vast soccer friendly population around Wyndham for their support and Sunshine is such an old area.

Brisbane are looking to relocate the clubs training base to the Gold Coast (potentially the suns facilities). It doesn’t specify if they are looking at Brisbane facilities. There is talk of Brisbane finding a new home ground due to Suncorps size.
