WAIBOP chief ex­ec­u­tive Karyn Wal­ters said a new fa­cil­ity would be able to host a range of foot­ball leagues, with the proposal in­clud­ing sev­eral ar­ti­fi­cial turfs, a cov­ered turf and build­ings used for coach­ing and ref­er­ee­ing cour­ses.

The ben­e­fit is the fa­cil­ity could hold sec­ondary school foot­ball and North­ern League foot­ball games dur­ing the day or mid-week un­der lights as well as walk­ing foot­ball, parafed and de­vel­op­ment of WAIBOP ref­er­ees through a training fa­cil­ity.

“The abil­ity to use the fa­cil­ity at night, un­der light­ing, added sig­nif­i­cant value to the fa­cil­ity. This gave the op­tion to sup­port com­mu­nity groups, cul­tural ac­tiv­i­ties and the arts,” Ms Wal­ters said.
