Geelong CEO Steve Hocking has put the prospect of increasing the club’s number of games per season at GMHBA Stadium to double digits back on the agenda.

Since 2018 – aside from the Covid-impacted 2020 season – the Cats have hosted nine games at home, with two at the MCG.

The last time Geelong played more than nine games at Kardinia Park was in 1996 when it hosted ten matches.

Speaking to K rock Football before Saturday’s win over Hawthorn about plans for the Kardinia Park precinct, which includes an indoor training facility, Hocking says discussions have started with the AFL.

“We’re looking at trying to move match day from just nine games a year to 10-11 over the coming years,” he said.

“We’re talking to the AFL about that.”
