- A 200-seat grandstand and new changerooms have been unveiled at Olympic Kingsway Sports Club.
- The transformative project was made possible by a $200,000 grant from the Morrison Government.
- $1.45 million has been spent by the Federal Coalition on the Kingsway Sporting Complex since 2016.
Dean Smith, Senator for Perth’s Northern Suburbs, has officially opened a new grandstand and changerooms at Wanneroo’s Olympic Kingsway Sports Club.
The grandstand, which will principally be used to enjoy soccer games, is capable of accommodating 200 spectators.
The changerooms are incorporated into the same building, located underneath the seating area.
Last Saturday afternoon, Senator Smith helped unveil two plaques to inaugurate the facilities, joined by City of Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts and Olympic Kingsway Sports Club President Steven Nelkovski.
The Club, known as the ‘Green Machine’, received a $200,000 Community Development Grant from the Morrison Government for the project.
The Grant is the latest instalment of the $1.45 million spent by the Federal Coalition on Kingsway Sporting Complex since the 2016 Election.
Other contributions have included $500,000 towards the installation of floodlights at the Wanneroo Districts Netball Association, $400,000 to build six changerooms and storage at Wanneroo City Soccer Club and $300,000 to complete the Kingsway Aquatic Play Centre.
Senator Smith said building the grandstand and changerooms was a 2016 election commitment and he was delighted it has been delivered on.
“These are superb facilities that will help both players and spectators make the most of their soccer.”
“The Green Machine, and President Steven Nelkovski in particular, are champions of community sport, and deserve every support,” he said.
“It’s wonderful to see Olympic Kingsway Sports Club go from strength to strength and, with this upgrade, it’s now guaranteed an even brighter future.”
“This grant is further proof of the Morrison Government’s real commitment to sport and recreation in our Northern Suburbs, and its commitment to delivering on its promises to locals.”
