Melbourne to move home base to
Optus Oval

NRL club Melbourne Storm will share AFL team Carlton's training and administration base at Optus Oval for the next two years.

The Storm has been forced to find a new base because its current administration offices will be torn down next year so a new stadium can be built adjacent to its current home ground Olympic Park. Its current training ground, Gosch's Paddock, will also be unavailable.

The Storm will move into the new stadium in time for the 2008 season, but in the interim will share Carlton's facilities, while still playing its home games at Olympic Park.
