NEW AUSSIE RULES FOOTBALL STORAGE UNITS ON OVAL


FOSS  talked to Aussie Rules organizers at the site on Saturday ...
  • City paid for and installed storage units
  • The units' original colour was blue but footballers wanted it painted brown to “fit in with the surroundings”
  • The City would not install it at the north end of the oval
  • “There will be no bar or washroom inside”
  • The units are primarily for storage and to provide a changing area for the women
  • They say that they have used and will continue to use a washroom in Humber College
  • The City would not allow them to use the Power House for storage, changing or washroom access
  • They say they are waiting on a promise from the City to install netting behind the goalposts to stop ball going in to “sensitive areas”
  • The cricketers will no longer use the oval – now exclusively for the footballers
  • The oval is the home of the Etobicoke Kangaroos and also the official home of the Ontario Aussie Rules Football Association
  • Local, provincial, inter-provincial and international games will be played on the oval
  • They do not anticipate use beyond Friday evenings, Saturdays and the occasional Sunday
  • They say they have no plans at this time for a stadium, a bar, snack bar or restaurant
