Victoria’s major stadiums will get nearly $500 million in state-funded upgrades, with almost half the cash going to a makeover of Etihad Stadium.Maybe, but for 'some' reason, in 2018 Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews announced $500,000,000 for the MCG & Etihad.
Nice of Government to hand that sort of money out.
In a $225 million deal with the AFL, the grand final will stay at the MCG until at least 2057....... The deal also means the Melbourne Cricket Club Trust has the security to undertake a major redevelopment of the MCG.
The money will come out of the 2018-19 state budget, alongside $241.6 million for suburban and regional grounds.
Bloody sleazy deal that works for Victoria at the expense of AFL footy nationally.
