Re: Beer Garden

For the third time, I gave you the example where AO DID NOT get EPL fixtures in 2019 and Perth Stadium DID and WHY there was a concern with restricted seating capacity when the EPL was tried at AO once previously.

Re: Beer Garden

Yes, and prepare yourself for more pain. The summer after next (2020/21) Cricket Australia have a four test series penciled in against India. Syd/Mel & Per will get one, and Bri & Ade must vie for the other. I tried to raise this issue about AO slipping down the order in the Adelaide Oval Hotel foru...

EPL club Liverpool played AO, seating capacity fully taken up, additional people missed out due to lack of seated capacity. Some concerns were raised. EPL clubs very financially driven. EPL should be just one example of an annual or biennial event at AO to attract international $$$. But AO cant lur...

[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

Who is talking about not having vision? Many people who support the hill remaining do so not because of a lack of vision, but because of the vision of it being intentionally unique. You talk about it attracting bigger events, but do you have any examples of events that didn't happen at AO which wou...

[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

As per my original comment I like Adelaide Oval, let me expand - I like the look of it, where it is, the surroundings, the atmosphere and most of what goes with it. However, the stadium in my opinion looks unfinished without a northern stand. I made a suggestion on how that could be rectified, I als...

[VIS] Re: Interstate Trains at Adelaide Railway Station

Look back at the 2010 freight rail bypass study if you want to see the potential southern hills bypass option, as well as the northern bypass options, and the leaving 'as is' option. At the time the economics did not stack up. Attached here for some light reading... https://investment.infrastructure...
