Local soccer players will reap the benefits of a $1.76 million upgrade to Ambarvale Sports Complex.
The home of Bradbury Ambarvale FC now boasts a larger amenities building, new irrigation systems for three fields, laser levelling, returfing, drainage and upgrading to floodlighting on two fields.
The project was funded by council and $150,000 from the NSW Government’s Asian Cup Legacy Fund.
Campbelltown Mayor George Brticevic, who joined club officials and Macarthur Football Association representatives for the official opening last weekend (pictured), couldn’t speak highly enough of the improved facilities.
“These new facilities are three times larger than the previous clubhouse to meet the needs of this growing club,’’ he said.
“It will enable them to store more equipment and run their match day operations with a larger canteen.
“Our region is home to about 10,000 amateur footballers and these upgrades mean they will have access to top class fields and lights that will enable them to conduct night games,” Cr Brticevic said.
As part of the upgrade wayfinding signage has also been installed around the facility to provide information and highlight connection paths across the site.
“These bright and vibrant signs are a new standard to be installed across our park and facility upgrades in the future to help beautify our city and direct people to walking paths, bike tracks and sporting fields to help keep our city active and healthy,” Cr Brticevic said.
