Kitchener ParkThe future of Perth's new football stadium remains in doubt, with Premier Colin Barnett appearing to favour the re-development of existing facilities at Subiaco Oval rather than constructing an entirely new sports ground.

"I do find it difficult in my mind to justify a billion dollars of tax-payers money on an extra 20,000 seats," Mr Barnett said after a cabinet meeting today. "However, no decision has been made and I don't rule that out." Mr Barnett said he will meet AFL chief Andrew Demetriou this week to discuss the options for a new football stadium at Kitchener Park or a progressive rebuild of Subiaco Oval. The Premier said he would take into account the AFL's position when Kitchener Parkmaking a final decision on the stadium plans, but a decision would not be reached this week.

"I understand the AFL would very much like a new stadium, I know that the West Australian Football Commission would like a new stadium, why wouldn't they?" Mr Barnett said. "But somebody's got to pay for it." Mr Barnett said he would assure the AFL a new stadium would be available, but it remained to be seen if it would be an entirely new facility or a re-build of Subiaco Oval.

"We're not talking about a coat of paint," he said. "A re-build means progressively demolishing entire sections of the perimeter seating and grandstand area and building entirely new grandstand facilities, it is re-building the oval section-by-section."
