The stadium, would come at cost of 200 to 250 million dollars and accommodate up to 20,000 spectators in a bowl setting  if built. 
Interim Administrator Greg Chemello says that council would contribute one third for stage one of the redevelopment but the other two thirds would have to be the state and commonwealth.
