I've been saying that for years. It's not a money-spinner Onehunga/Penrose. Downtown makes all the sense in the world. Let's face it, the council want cars gone, which makes it easier to walk around town. Easier to create a real vibe. It also makes sense to have Blues and Warriors at the same venue. Everyone wins.Im only basing my opinion on the only 2 leagues clubs I'm familiar with.. Eels and Broncos Leagues clubs.. they are functional because they are open week long with bars and restaurants when fans/families/non league supporters go. They are also built in residential areas surrounded by fans of the club.
I don't think many people would say "hey should we go to Penrose for dinner on Tuesday?"
If we tag onto the Waterfront stadium, then a Warriors Leagues club and Auckland football club built into the stadium precinct would be fantastic.
