Western Melbourne Group to confirm Stadium plans

Written by:

New A-League club Western Melbourne Group intends to confirm their stadium situation in the coming weeks.

A central focus of their successful A-League bid was building their own soccer-specific ground in Melbourne’s west but the proposed 15,000-seater is only expected to open in 2022.

Until then, the club had earmarked Geelong’s GMHBA Stadium as its temporary home but that was thrown into doubt after it emerged a deal still hasn’t been signed to play A-League games there once the side starts in the competition later this year.

Speaking on Breakfast, former Socceroo and Western Melbourne Group football director Steve Horvat said the club is only now sitting down with stadium management to find a solution.
