The ground is to be enlarged from its present size to that of one of the biggest grounds in the AFL, while over the years the outer boundary fences along Punt Road and Brunton Ave have been pushed in (reducing the amount of spectator space). The ground legally has a capacity for 6000 now (or 3000 according to Austadiums). The ground is rapidly becoming a modern day Glenferrie Oval, so it begs the question of where they are going to accommodate 8000 spectators? Piggyback or Zoom perhaps. It sounds like they are promising the world, but it will be interesting to see how it is delivered.

What they should do is move the whole oval, grandstand and facilities closer to the MCG by 30, 50m

Not a criticism, but another refurb to milk the available taxpayer funds, including those to pay off the behind closed doors GF deal/stitch up.
