AFL Tasmania general manager Shaun Young has said there were failings on two accounts on Saturday when the TSL game between Western Storm and Glenorchy finished in near darkness without the Aurora Stadium lights being turned on.
“One is that the lights weren’t on and should have been on and activated at three-quarter time and that has obviously failed to be done by Western Storm whose home game it was,” Young said.
“And once it was realised that wasn’t occurring then the match management of the day should have realised that and initiated that ourselves.”
Young said given the later start time of 2.45pm he believed it would have been appropriate for the lights to have been turned on at three-quarter time.
He said cost was not an issue in the failure to activate the lights.
“This is something I will need to further look into tomorrow when I am back at work as to the reasonwhy they weren’t initiated and implemented the lights and to ensure that doesn’t happen again.”
