Elizabeth & Unley to host 2016 NAB Cup Games

Post by Big Phil on Tue Oct 27, 2015 12:31 pm

Good news for Central and Sturt with their home grounds being selected to host NAB Cup games in 2016...

This generalyl comes with a nice little cash injection from the AFL to upgrade facilities and put in the AFL standard goal posts, as well...

Port will host Melbourne at Playford Alive Oval and Unley will have Adelaide take on West Coast...

I assume Port will be asking Centrals to build them larger change rooms for this game.

I would assume Port will get the home (Dogs) rooms, which are quite spacious compared to other home rooms around the league, so it will Melbourne with the small room, out the back...

Be interesting to see the City of Unley's reaction to Unley getting a NAB Challenge game.  The locals won't be happy about the match, that's for sure.

What a spectacle it will be when on National TV an AFL player slides into a Dog Crap in the middle of Unley Oval!!! Razz

Or when Milera or Menzel kick a beauty of a goal at the tennis court end and there isn't a soul on the TV screen celebrating the goal

no atmosphere at the tennis court end mate. I think it's time the gates are open for people to go down that wing side of the ground. Just keep the score board clear for the members to see. It's a joke and hope the dates on the coke drinks are in date not like last season. Out of date drinks at full price Sad

Without knowing what is on coke bottles there is a distinct difference between ''used by'' & ''best before'' on any item

Yes, I was out there this evening, after work...

The old posts are out of the ground and the new ones will be installed over the coming days, I believe...

drove past Unley Oval today, the sprinklers were on, the cricket pitch roped off, council workers sitting at the benches near the toilets in the pocket outer side like they do every morning (i presume 8.50am is smoko time), the ground itself looked immaculate & the goal posts are twice the size as they used to be, sadly the point posts are white & off course plenty of joggers & dog walkers out there too

Crows members have been told they won't be able to use their membership for free access to Unley on Sunday, and the Grandstand seats are sold out, so I expect all tickets to be sold for Sunday's game. With the forecast of 39 degrees on Sunday, and the game starting at 1:40pm, how many actually turn up is another story.

I went to Unley oval late in '83 to see West, and to see who was going to lose the Grand Final - there were a LOT of people there, it was standing room only! Often wonder what the attendance was for that particular game........?

Any chance of the game time being changed due to heat?
