The Auckland Council dont own Eden Park so they can only sit on there hands hoping for such things...

They don't ? Shit. Sorry dude I always assume that they did but that's cool. Thanks for correcting me ... :)

first one won't happen while woodstock are the sleeve sponsor ;)

Pretty sure Spark are unlikely too given Vodafone's jersey sponsorship ;)

Let's go with Pornhub - Konnie's homeground!

Man can't be any worse than what's already out there.

Ladies and Gentlemen I present to you actual name of actual stadium from somewhere deep inside Switzerland - Wankdorf !

Warriors want new waterfront stadium with the Blues, Auckland Council interested


1455848199924.jpg


Warriors managing director Jim Doyle wants the club to move to a central Auckland stadium when their new deal runs out in 2028.

Regional Facilities Auckland and the Warriors announced on Friday that the NRL club would remain at Mt Smart Stadium until 2028, but when that contract ends Doyle would like a new stadium in the heart of the city, which would be shared with the Blues.

It would spell the end of Eden Park and Mt Smart Stadium, but Doyle believes this would make Auckland a more attractive city.

"To me, a city like Auckland deserves a downtown stadium," Doyle said.

"All public transport leads there, there are restaurants and cafes and it would be so vibrant.

"It could be shared between the Warriors, the Blues, soccer. So we could have games there on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday and each team would pick up a lot more fans because it would be easier to get to.

"For me, it's the only logical outcome for the city and possibly the country. I think it will happen, it's just a case of when."

Auckland came close to having a waterfront stadium for the 2011 Rugby World Cup, when it was being weighed up whether to improve Eden Park or build a new stadium.

The Labour government in 2006 announced its preference for the waterfront stadium, so too did Auckland City Council, but the Auckland Regional Council voted unanimously against it.

Great news we are staying and not being forced to Eden Park.

Central City stadium for Warriors, Blues and football would be awesome, but it doesn't need to be a 60,000 seat monster.

A purpose built, rectangular stadium seating 30-35,000 would be fantastic. No temporary seating, just seats close to the action, like the image 3 posts above, but on a smaller scale. How good would that be, being able to eat / drink in town before or after the game. Transport hubs and parking all very close.

I wonder if it will happen in my lifetime (I'm only 46) the way the council's take so long to sort out even minor improvements to anything !

Maybe Uncle Eric will put some big money into it and it will be run by Wayne lets have another jersey Scurrah

They might not own it, but they have sunk all the money into it for the RWC upgrade. It is a bit like owning a house but you owe the bank way more than it is worth. It is the bank's/council's problem.

Can only think of Vodafone or SKYCITY fronting the cash for it really. Vodafone would love it as it would ensure they get a mention in Australia where we are known as the NZ Warriors and not the Vodafone Warriors...
Good point, but they are a bit strapped for cash at present and have been reconsidering all expenditure.

Nah - build a new stadium in the post-modern architectural style and call it the Post Modern Stadium or PMS for short - for three weeks of the month the female fans will love it and for the other week, they'd want to burn it down.

That's just a historic photo of the 2006 proposed stadium where, given the "wisdom" of the day, they still wanted it to be able to hold Cricket games.

Hopefully they've now worked out what the average punter has known all along - a cricket ground means the fans (who provide the revenue to run the stadium) don't like it when they feel too far from the action when watching sport played on a rectangular pitch.

Hopefully they've learn their lesson and realized that what's needed is a rectangular 30-35k stadium on the Tank Farm, leave Eden Park for larger sporting events and get rid of North Harbour and Mt Smart stadiums. Keep Waitakere Stadium for athletics and trial matches. Let the EPTB develop Eden Park #2 with a mix of housing and 4-5 storey apartments along with commercial space.

Problem solved!!!

It really is amazing how far we have come since Uncle took control, unbelievable.
Common Sense is a dying attribute but Uncle has minining truckloads of it. I'd love a chance to see how he operates on a day to day basis as he has got some Einstein/Edison/Caesar shit going on.

It was near 30 years between the time I'd been down the Waterfront/Viaduct and when the dea of why Auckland needed a decent stadium in town, I got it, but upon my return there and having the chance to have a good walk around the Viaduct I was completely blown away by how absurd it was not to build one downtown, complete idiocy.

I think Uncle will have a plan hatching to see this through to fruition and probably already has a que for naming rights to the Mt.

It wouldn't surprise me to see Uncle walking across the Harbour carrying Cappy on his shoulders:D
Hey Mt Welly can you see Uncles Halo when you get up close?

The thing that amazes me with JD is not the fact he has common sense, as virtually everyone on here could see the incredibly obvious answer that he saw, it's the way he manages to turn the views of the jumped up, arrogant idiot bureaucratic types 180 degrees. Afterall only the head idiot left to be replaced with someone with some sense, the others were talked around. History has shown us, sometimes arrogance will force a stupid idea into existence rather than admitting the idea was wrong.
