Back to Belmore President Luke Brailey has issued a heartfelt plea for Sydney Olympic FC to end the public bickering over the use of Belmore Sports Ground.
Mr Brailey said sporting groups of all persuasions have a moral obligation to "work together in a positive and productive manner" if Belmore Sports Ground is to reach its optimum potential as a multi-use sporting venue.
"I think that all proponents of local sport are very much interested in the success of this historic venue as a multi-purpose sporting facility," he said.
"Belmore Sports Ground is a community asset. Back to Belmore recognises the growing imperative for rugby league, soccer, rugby union and other sporting bodies wishing to use the facilities at Belmore to work together to promote the development of local sport and forge innovative solutions to nurture the talents of the next generation of sports players."
Operations Manager Steven Cataldi is optimistic that soccer could one day become a major attraction at Belmore Sports Ground.
"To be blunt, soccer's affinity with Belmore Sports Ground at the present time is tenuous. Is Belmore Sports Ground really the right venue for Sydney Olympic FC? Do they really belong there?" opined Mr Cataldi.
"If Sydney Olympic FC decide that their tenure at Belmore has come to an end, this could be an auspicious opportunity to turn a new page for association football in our area and find local clubs that truly identify themselves with the Canterbury-Bankstown District to call Belmore home in the future."
Vice President Luke Cevolani said the Back to Belmore Inc. executive committee will happily work with local sporting groups to find a workable solution and overcome this significant community issue.
