Gold Coast Suns open new training and administration hub in Commonwealth Games precinct
Having been operating from demountables behind the Metricon Stadium since entering the AFL Premiership in 2011, the Gold Coast Suns are moving into a new $22 million training and administration hub.
Revealed to media this week, the Suns’ new $22 million training and administration centre features a state-of-the-art gym, hot and cold recovery baths, a 25 metre three-lane pool, medical facilities and coaching offices. When completely operational, the facility will also have theatre and lecture rooms for player education, administration space for staff, a cafe and social area.
Part of the larger $126 million 2018 Commonwealth Games precinct, the facility is located on The headquarters, located on Gold Coast City Council land, was jointly funded by the Federal Government ($15 million) and the AFL and Suns ($7 million).
Labelling the facilities the best of their kind in the competition, Gold Coast Suns Chairman Tony Cochrane explained that training facility would establish the Suns as a truly professional club.
Stating that the new base already had lifted the spirits of the whole club, Cochrane commented “we’ve set a new benchmark for not only ourselves, but we’ve (also) set a new benchmark in the AFL.”
Cochrane said the facilities made the Suns a "fair-dinkum club" and he expected the results to follow, adding “I think this club is shaped to achieve that in the next two to three years.
“This year we have a very strong playing list. We have some depth for the first time ever and everybody in this club, whether you’re the coach or the cleaner, they know this is a really critical year in the history of the Gold Coast Football Club.”
