From the President - richmondfc.com.au

Dear Members and Supporters,

Welcome to the last of my regular columns for 2017. It has been a truly remarkable year for the Richmond Football Club. It’s wonderful to reflect on what we achieved and at the same time look forward to 2018 with great excitement. The players and coaching staff are back on deck and totally focussed on next year, as is the entire Club for that matter.

As always, in this column, I will answer some of your questions.

Will the Club be able to share its master plan vision in the near future?

Our ambition is to share conceptual drawings for the master plan at Punt Road Oval in the first quarter of 2018. Naturally there is much to consider in terms of what the new facility might look like and how it works with our existing facilities – those considerations have been ongoing for some time. Beyond that, we need to engage key stakeholders in our plan and develop a strategy to fund the redevelopment.


If you have any questions you would like me to address in future columns please send them through to president@richmondfc.com.au

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all members and fans a happy and safe holiday season. I look forward to seeing you all at the football in 2018.

Go Tigers

Peggy O’Neal
President

Punt Road really needs some alterations. I'd suggest the following additions:

2018 - 12th cup
2019 - 13th cup
2020 - 14th cup
2021 - 15th cup
2022 - 16th cup
2023 ... and so on.

I'm guessing if it's to be a new building then it'll be behind the northern goals where the old scoreboard use to exist? There's not much room left elsewhere along the Punt Rd side wing or Brunton Ave goal end.

They need to find a way to get the national trust to allow them to pull down the Jack Dyer stand and rebuild it.
It's an eye sore and a poor use of space.

What we really need is for the MCC to give us some more land so that we can develop a larger admin and training facility and a reconfiguration of the oval that we can develop viewing capacity to 30-40,000 360 degrees.
Disinformation is 70% letting stupid journalists make the wrong assumptions, repeatedly.

LOL the club love telling us they'll share information with us so people think "by golly, isn't this club great" but never actually do so I ain't holding my breath
