You may have seen the announcement made today by the Vodafone Warriors confirming that they have signed a long term deal with Auckland Council to remain at Mt Smart Stadium.
There has been a lot of publicity over the last few years about Speedway moving to Mt Smart, the Warriors moving to Eden Park, and cricket moving to Western Springs. This will now not be the case. With this recent development, we thought it was important to let you know what may happen going forward.
Western Springs, will remain a Speedway venue through to and including the 2018/2019 season. This recent 3 year extension is to provide time to continue our discussions with Auckland Council and Regional Facilities Auckland about their Stadium Strategies.
You will all recall recent discussions I have had with you as a group in that we have worked with Auckland Council and Regional Facilities Auckland, extending our stay at Western Springs year by year. Our plan is to continue to do this until either they decide to leave us at Western Springs permanently, or they find us an alternate venue that is clearly a better solution. This has not been the case as yet.
Greg Mosen – Promoter.
