Nick Politis weighs in as Sydney’s new Allianz Stadium saga continues


Sydney Roosters chairman, Nick Politis, has marked the NRL club’s territory at the new Allianz Stadium in Sydney amid attempts by the South Sydney Rabbitohs to share it.

According to The Daily Telegraph, the Rabbitohs want to quit Accor Stadium at Sydney Olympic Park to share the new $850 million Allianz Stadium with the Roosters from next season.

Speaking on the Roosters Radio podcast, Politis was adamant the new state-of-the-art facility should remain an exclusive NRL home for his club.

“I’ve heard other people say they want to play there because it’s their home,” Politis said, without mentioning the Rabbitohs specifically.

“The point is we’ve been there since 1928. We started with the old sports ground and then 30 years with the old Allianz Stadium.

“Nobody else has played there. For another club to say we want to go there because it’s our home, it’s not their home. The Roosters are the only people that belong there. It’s our true home and it’s very sacred.”

Politis’ comments come as tensions between the foundation clubs are at fever pitch ahead of their Friday night blockbuster at Moore Park.
