They have their drawbacks - asbestos scares, long queues for the toilet and a beer - but there is still plenty of love for suburban stadiums. The big crowds at Leichhardt, Shark Park and Brookvale in recent weeks are proof Sydneysiders still enjoy the "intimacy" that only boutique grounds can provide. The trick is to get the right amount of games allocated to the smaller venues.
Bulldogs fans believe the current one match a season at Belmore is too low. A survey of voting members conducted by Back to Belmore found that 78 per cent of respondents wanted the venue upgraded to facilitate more games, while 58 per cent want more games there in the ground's current state.
Back to Belmore patron Luke Brailey said the results would be used to "lobby the state and federal governments for financial assistance to upgrade Belmore Sports Ground."
