WCN Editorial Team 19 Aug 2021 OCEANIA BUILDINGS

The Western Australian government has announced the start of construction on its $32.5m State Football Centre in Queens Park in the City of Canning.

The facility will include two pitches for junior and high-performance development and grassroots community football programmes.

It will also include administration accommodation for Football West and will have capacity to accommodate up to 700 spectators along with the ability to expand up to 2,000 spectators through temporary seating for occasional special events.

Both state and Australian governments have provided $16.25m each to the State Football Centre training facilities.

Australia Deputy Prime Minister and Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Minister Barnaby Joyce said: “The State Football Centre would serve as a centre-of-excellence for Australia and the Indian Ocean rim.

“The State Football Centre will be a game-changer for Western Australia as participation in football continues to expand.

“The Australian Government is committed to providing modern, equitable and long-lasting facilities for grassroots sporting clubs through to the elite level.”

Upon completion in 2023, the new State Football Centre will be used as a training facility for the FIFA 2023 Women's World Cup, which will be hosted by Australia and New Zealand.

Civil engineering contractor Tracc Civil was appointed to complete the forward works at the new facility that began in early May.

Western Australian Premier Mark McGowan said: “In addition to supporting the next generation of footballers, the State Football Centre is part of the State Government's pipeline of infrastructure works to help support WA jobs and the COVID-19 economic recovery.

“We are supporting projects like this all across the State to create stronger communities, and to generate ongoing jobs for Western Australians.”
