State Government pledge gets the ball rolling for Mitchie FC

Tue 20 Jan 2015

Local soccer players will soon benefit from Queensland's first main artificial surface field in their own backyard.

I recently presented the Mitchelton Football Club with a $400,000 Queensland Government pledge to construct a synthetic playing surface at their home grounds at Teralba Park.

I was more than happy to support this concept after club president, Roger McIntosh had approached me about his vision.

The club and other community groups will benefit from a synthetic turf which will reduce onoing field maintenance and can be used in any type of weather conditions.

The new turf will also be used to promote womens football and will be offered to NPL Queensland Womens and Brisbane Womens Premier league clubs for matches.

This pledge will go towards the $1.2 million project which will bring the club's field up to an international standard and will potentially attract ticketed matches such as Brisbane Roar or the FFA Cup.
