The Moreton Bay region is set to benefit from the Palaszczuk Government’s strong investment in sport, with a new multi-million dollar football precinct officially opened in Burpengary today.

The Palaszczuk Government worked closely with local council, contributing $1.5 million for the precinct.

Minister for Sport Mick de Brenni said the Moreton Bay Central Sports Complex Football Precincnt, delivered as part of the Get Playing Plus program, is a significant coup for the local community.

“The new complex has the opportunity to attract national exhibition games, carnivals and state-level fixtures, plus the chance to host twilight social matches. It will also host the region’s first FIFA-rated synthetic field,” Mr de Brenni said.

“Our support for football players and fans in the Moreton Bay community is testament to the Palaszczuk Government’s commitment to support all Queenslanders become more sports active.”

Member for Morayfield Mark Ryan, who attended the official opening, said the new complex will be home to the Caboolture Sports Football Club.

“We expect more than 600 playing members to use this new facility and I can’t to wait to come back here to cheer the players on,” Mr Ryan said.

“The Palaszczuk Government recognises the importance of football in our communities, including $3.7 million for Get Started Vouchers to support children and young people join a football club and $1.3 million to football clubs through our Female Facilities Program for inclusive change rooms and amenities.”
