New soccor precinct in Burpengary could host major national or international matches
Following the announcement last week that the Moreton Bay Region will gain a $11.45 million soccor precinct at the Moreton Bay Central Sports Complex, Burpengary, State Member for Morayfield the Hon. Mark Ryan says in the future there could be either exhibition matches, training sessions and maybe major matches played at the new complex.
Mark stated that there are already several international teams from the UK Premier league interested in visiting Australia in coming years and are desiring the high class of playing fields such being built at the Moreton Bay Central Sports Complex, Burpengary.
Mark Ryan went on to say that this is one the few soccor synthetic playing fields in Queensland and with the well appointed facilities at the complex which also contains AFL oval and Aquatic centre will stamp this place as a jewel for sports fans and players alike in the Moreton Bay Region
The fact that the synthetic field is also FIFA-rated soccer field together with two new grass pitches, field lighting, internal roads and car parking means this is a world class facility.
This is a major victory for all levels of football in the Moreton Bay Region and reflects the popularity of soccer as one of the most played outdoor team sport in Australia.
Mark Ryan MP said that the project would be a major boon for the community, both in terms of local jobs during construction and in the ongoing use of a first class sporting facility.
