Team 11 Stadium Plans Take Centre Stage

THE front page of the Herald Sun, front page of two local newspapers, major news stories on Channels Seven, Nine and 10, more than eight radio interviews and a stack of website stories.

Team 11’s plans to build a new rectangular stadium in the heart of Dandenong sure captured the imagination of media in Melbourne and beyond on Monday.

The analysis of Fox Sports commentator Simon Hill was pretty simple.

“For me, they’re in,” Hill said on the Fox Football Podcast.
