I thought some of the reasoning behind the redevelopment was as a hall of fame style display of the Clubs history. All the cups and glass should be hung around the place.

I know Northport was the one asked but I believe that the facility was funded by both the council and PMFC. YOu will love i when you see it in a few weeks Digs - you will even say - this is THE BEST IN THE COMP!

What happens in there? Do they sell food etc? Is the bar open to the public during the game?

It looks good from outside.

Should be interesting when the Port council want to hang all the photos of past mayors & garbos of the year.

Digs - very fitting nickname - always trying to have a dig (especially at Port people). The Port Melbourne council funded the Port Melbourne sharks facility which included a spacious social club room. That was some 20 + years ago now and they have not put up any pictures of port mayors or garbos yet.

Heath_eld - the new room hosts the presidents luncheon pre game which is great as people can watch the reserves game whilst having their meal. During the game theirs people manning the bar so you can go in there and watch the game behind glass whilst having a drink and after the game the presentation is held there.

Mega,
I cannot believe that you fell for that one.
You know Port is my second side.
If you keep biting like that you'll do Burraburger out of a job.

Blackrocker - I know that the council no longer exists - however when the facilities were built the Port Melbourne council did exist.

Digs - I knew you were kidding but you know I like entertaining you :) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
