St Kilda firms for future Wellington involvement

 Bring a game to Europe!

I know, ''walk before you can run'' etc. etc., but it'd be a great promo for the game here. There are plenty of stadiums in Europe with facilities for a game, and the fanbase is growing. Maybe even tie it in with the European Championships in 2013, or a Euro Cup some year?

I'm sure the AFL lads would love a trip to Europe, and sure if they're stuck, i've a spare couch in my place!

This is St Kilda we're talking about. Offer them your couch for the night and they'll take it the wrong way!!

It would be great for a game in Europe too, but in terms of a match during the regular premiership season, the travel issues are so much greater than a quick trip across to NZ.  Clubs don't even like travelling from the east coast to Perth, let alone the best part of a day to Europe.  Not likely to happen in season any time soon.  Really hoping the NZ match happens as soon as 2013 and becomes a regular fixture.

Would also be nice to activate Sheedy's idea from a few years back of having an NZ vs PNG curtain raiser on ANZAC Day.
