STATE GOVERNMENT INVESTMENT INTO FOOTBALL FACILITIES

As you may already be aware, our State Government announced on the 14th July 2017  major investment funding for the upgrading of football facilities across the state.

Included in this announcement is a brand new purpose built facility to be located on Majors Road O’Halloran Hill.

The Cove FC has been for quite some time now extremely pro-active in working together with local council in an attempt to expand and grow its current facilities.

From our early beginnings as an Amateur club established in 1983, to the introduction of Junior teams in 2008 and participating in the FFSA, our club’s recent growth and development has been outstanding.Our home during this time has been based at Club Cove – Cove Sports & Community Club in Hallett Cove.

As our club has grown, so has the need to seek additional space. In recent years we have been fortunate to acquire the use of Capella Reserve for our Junior squads and even more recently, the erection of light towers at Capella Reserve. Our Junior base has continued to grow and this season, for the first time, the addition of (2) two Junior Girls squads has meant an even greater need for more facilities and infrastructure to host these teams. Club Marion has been a great asset for us to utilize and continuing on with the success of the girls teams, our club is now looking to nominate a Senior Girls team for Season 2018. With so much growth, The Cove FC now needs its own home big enough to have everyone under the one roof.The time has come for our club to truly become one. To do this we need to acknowledge our past and head confidently into the future.

The Cove FC is delighted to be able to announce to all its members that in conjunction with Marion Council, FFSA and the State Government, it is our intention to relocate to the Majors Road development on its completion.  The facilities and infrastructure on offer in this “state of the art” facility will be second to none in the Southern area and will boast some of the following features.

Three artificial pitches

500 seat spectator stand

300 lux lighting facilities

Clubrooms

Bar & Dining facilities

This is an amazing result for our club, it’s players, members, volunteers, families and friends.

To have the ability to host both Junior & Senior fixtures at the one venue – our venue – is simply a dream come true and well deserved.

The Cove FC committee has worked extremely long and hard hours to secure this unique opportunity and will continue to work together with Marion Council and the FFSA to ensure a smooth transition.

We are hopeful we may be able to host games at the venue in 2019, of course this is subject to council works – time frames etc.

Finally, I would like to take the opportunity to thank our hard working committee, coaching staff and volunteers of The Cove FC, Marion Council Members, the FFSA and State Government for their support and of course to all our Sponsors, players, members and families whom without your support for this wonderful club none of this would be possible.

We hope you all continue to enjoy the remainder of this season and together we will work hard to ensure a fantastic future ahead.
