Published: 9 November 2017
Logan City Council and Brisbane Roar have announced that the Club’s new state-of-the-art training facility at Logan Metro Sports Park is scheduled to be completed early next year.
City of Logan Mayor Luke Smith said Council has committed $9 million to redevelop Logan Metro Sports Park, in Heritage Park, the new home and training facility of Queensland’s only Hyundai A-League team.
“The new facilities include a premier sporting field, club house, offices, change rooms and amenities, as well as carparks and access roads,” Mayor Smith said.
“With Football Queensland at Meakin Park and Football Brisbane also being based at Logan Metro Sports Park, the City of Logan is now the home of football in Queensland.
“Aside from being a city that loves sport and has produced sports stars across all codes, Logan is also an ideal location for major sporting operations in South-East Queensland.
“This is certainly an exciting time for sports in the City of Logan.”
Brisbane Roar’s Managing Director, David Pourre, said the Club is thankful for the support given by Logan City Council and is looking forward to continuing the strong partnership between the two parties, as well as building stronger relationships with key stakeholders and the local community.
“BRFC is humbled and privileged to be working with Logan City Council, we have always dreamed of having a home and it’s wonderful to see our dream come to a reality,” Mr Pourre said.
“The progress of our new facilities has been steady however it’s exciting to see the infrastructure and fields coming together nicely. It’s important that we continue to work hard within the community to increase our contribution and grow our support more widely.
“We are positive, moving forward, however, we still have a long way to go. We will work hard on and off the field to ensure our members, sponsors, fans and the community are proud of their club because we will always be thankful and proud of their loyalty, passion and commitment.”
Head Coach John Aloisi and his side are thrilled to see the progress made on the new training base which they will call home early 2018.
“Our Hyundai A-League squad is delighted to know that in the near future we will have our own dedicated high-quality training facility,” Aloisi added.
“It is a great opportunity for the Club to also develop close ties with a local community that has produced many quality sports men and women.”
