The director described Manuka as an "amazing" facility and said she wouldn't close the door on Canberra's community clubs utilising the venue moving forward.
"I think it’s a balance, it’s an elite ground but we do have a lot of local content that we actually do play here both AFL as well as cricket and we’ll continue to have that relationship," Clarke said.
"However, it’s been really fantastic to see Phillip [Oval] coming on board and that’s an amazing venue as well.
"This [Manuka] oval is amazing to watch cricket, international cricket, amazing matches like the Cricket World Cup, Big Bash League final, the BBL last year as well as the women’s Test.
"So we’ve had some really good content, we’ve got it and we’ve proven that. We’ve got Canberrans coming to see the game so now we’re getting the structures in place as well."
