SYDNEY Olympic FC officials have reassured their fans they won't be going anywhere despite the Bulldogs seeking to make greater use of Belmore Sports Ground.
Olympic president George Giannaros said the ground was the “heart and soul” of the soccer club.
“Basically, if we don't have Belmore, there'll be no more Olympic,” he said.
Mr Giannaros said overuse of the ground was an issue being discussed.
The Bulldogs have been training and playing more NSW Cup and Toyota Cup games at the ground.
“The ground at the moment is in the worst condition I've seen it,” he said. “We've only played 38 hours on it so far this year, and on Sunday it was terrible.”
Despite the club's determination, Mr Giannaros conceded compromise would be the key.
One option would be to play Sydney Olympic's youth grades at the nearby Peter Moore Field.
The Bulldogs are open to an NRL return to Belmore has been open about a possible return to their spiritual home at Belmore at NRL level after their ANZ Stadium contract expires in 2015.
