Mayor of Dandenong Jim Memeti details the regions audacious bid to become an A-League super power. In terms of context and the background story to the bid, Memeti begins by highlighting what is on offer. “South East Melbourne is 26km away from the CBD and is populated by about 1.2million people that is only going to grow in the future too.

“Added to that, the City of Greater Dandenong is the most multicultural city in Victoria – we’ve over 160 different nationalities and they love the game of football. So we’re very serious with our offer. The three councils have got together to work together on everything – where would we build the training ground, where would the stadium be and so on.” LISTEN NOW.
