What is AFL?
AFL stands for Australian Football League and describes a contact sport that is very popular in Australia. The game has been in existence since 1841 in different forms. The main aim of a player is to kick the ball challengingly between series of four goalposts. Players play the game on specially designed venues like Manuka Oval. The specific number of goal posts that the ball goes through determines the number of points you score. You pass the ball around between teammates challengingly. The team with the highest points becomes the winner. Learn more about one of Australia’s most popular games by acquiring your tickets from ticketblaster.com
The effect of the redevelopment
Being the main cricket and AFL venue in the ACT (Australian Capital Territory), authorities have put in place measures to ensure Manuka Oval remains an appealing venue for world-class sporting events. Consequently, there have a series of redevelopment plans, the first stage being the erection of sports lights for television broadcast. The sports lighting essentially elevated day to day structures into magnificent, slender, distinctive forms that create an “embracing the Oval” effect. The lights come in handy during evening events. They also provide economic benefits for the surrounding community and local traders.
