“But at the end of the day we lost a lot of supporters going to Redcliffe – it’s not ideal going north – and it’s league territory now with the Dolphins there too.
“We just want to reconnect with our community and also do what’s best for our supporters.”
The Roar’s final home game at Redcliffe drew just 4653 spectators, with 3245 attending the game before that.
Mann said the Roar understood that public transport was a problem in Ballymore.
“There’s just going to have to be a better transportation system,” Mann said.
Schrinner said on Tuesday he was aware of rumors that the Roar were interested in Ballymore.
Speaking at an event to mark the start of construction on a $35 million cycling arena in Murarrie, the mayor said transport remained Ballymore’s Achilles’ heel and that the residential community around the stadium should be consulted on potential changes.
“At any major location, there needs to be good quality transportation,” he said.
“You see this with the Gabba having access to both rail and Brisbane Metro bus services; we see that with Brisbane Arena (Roma Street) with great access to train and bus.
“It should be a critical part of any discussion.”
Schrinner said many sports teams were jostling for venues, especially with the Gabba out of action for redevelopment for four years from 2026.
“It’s a moving celebration in many ways right now, but it’s also an exciting time,” he said.
Schrinner, who is vice president of the Brisbane Organizing Committee for the 2032 Olympic Games, said a new “coordinating entity” for games infrastructure would be announced soon.
“Ultimately, it’s up to the state government to make an announcement on that very soon,” he said.
Prime Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk said during the recent announcement of Gabba and Brisbane Live funding that the federal and state governments would decide on infrastructure projects for games.
But Schrinner said the key was the “decision-making process.”
“Even if it’s her department, is there an entity above the one involved in the decision-making process?” he asked.
“Is that entity representative of all levels of government and key stakeholders?
“That’s the critical thing.”
