  • It's a shame NIB Stadium is doing this, first they charge Glory the highest amount in the A-League for Stadium use, now they do this!

    Maybe its time to build stadiums that aren't in the high-cost real estate areas of Perth's inner city suburbs - give people a reason to go to other areas in Perth.

  • I simply cannot understand why the North and South ends of the ground could not of been redeveloped during the force season they would of still had the eastern side available. The Western Force have not been selling out anyway. That way at least only the Eastern stand (largest side) would be closed for gloryĆ¢??s seasons allowing more seats for glory fans on the N & S sides. As a member for 15 years on the eastern side this is a disgrace.
