You can’t just add 10k of stands. There is no space at either ground to do so. You would need to demolish current stands first. So, to increase capacity by 50%, you may need to demolish half of the stadium (losing 8k), then build a 18k stand/s in their place. Then build new Amenities, club rooms and corporate facilities.This article states that GWS Giants stadium could have its capacity increased from the current 24,000 to 30,000, for only $20,000,000. I thought it would cost more than $20,000,000.
This is relevant for Tasmania since, if it is granted the 19th licence to enter the AFL, both Bellerive & YP must have new grandstands (each adding another c. 10,000 capacity) in their Outers- bringing capacity to at least 28,000 at each. What would it cost to add 10,000 seater grandstands at both? Or add 12,000 seater grandstands to both?
How many tourists, on average, are likely to attend from Melb. Clubs?
Because HFC was playing in Launny 4 games pa since 2012, the "novelty" would quickly wear off for HFC fans, when marketing a footy trip to Tas. to the same membership every year, for many years.

IIRC, Giants Stadium cost c. $65,000,000 to build in 2012; & the AFL contributed c. $20,000,000. This seems cheap, when BankWest Stadium, capacity 30,000, cost $360,000,000 to build in 2019.
You could increase each ground by 2 - 4K without have to demolish existing stands, but to bring up to 28!- 30k is a major rebuild. Any probably not possible or worthwhile at Belreive given it is situated in suburban back street with very poor access.
