The Morton Bay Central Sports Complex will receive vital upgrades thanks to a $3.5 million investment from the Coalition Government.
The complex is the home ground for the Caboolture Sports Football Club (CSFC), which has more than 900 playing members and around 2,300 supporters.
Member for Longman Terry Young said he was delighted to have secured the $3.5 million in funding which would help CSFC continue to grow, while attracting regional football competitions to Longman.
“Football is booming in Queensland with 37 per cent more participants in 2021, compared with the previous year,” Mr Young said.
“These upgrades mean the Complex will have three new football fields to complement the existing synthetic and grass fields, as well as new lighting, car parking, irrigation and access roads.
“This will ensure CSFC can continue to grow by providing more space for training and allowing matches and training to occur after dark.
“The Mighty Snakes are going from strength to strength, having last year won the FQPL 2 Premiership and earning promotion to the Premier League for this year.
“We’ll also be able to host regional football competitions right here, attracting clubs from across Queensland to come and compete here in Longman.”
The new fields and other upgrades will be completed in partnership with Moreton Bay Regional Council.
The Coalition Government continues to deliver for the residents of Longman and this announcement is part of our plan to build a strong economy and a stronger future.
