Sydney Olympic Park. $45m development

The state government has approved a $45 million redevelopment of the Sydney Showground to house a second Sydney AFL team. The redevelopment has been opposed by the NRL because the government has already spent $27 million developing a training ground for the Greater Western Sydney team at Blacktown, which some say is now likely to be abandoned, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.The Greater Western Sydney team is expected to play only nine games at the 30,000-seat showground site. The AFL expects crowds of only 15,000 to 17,000. The team is due to enter the AFL competition in 2012.
