$14 million regional sports hub unveiled in Coffs Harbour
May 27, 2022

Coffs Harbour City Council has unveiled the $14 million Coffs Coast Regional Sports Hub Stage 2 Project which delivers a comprehensive range of sporting facilities that cater to local through to elite requirements.

The Stage 2 Project follows Stage 1 (completed in 2019) which involved the upgrade of C.ex Coffs International Stadium.

The Regional Sports Hub Stage 2 consists of:

  • Two new synthetic playing fields, designed to FIFA standards and to suit multiple sport codes and uses
  • One turf playing field with sub surface drainage and irrigation
  • All fields include Australian Standard sport lighting
  • New amenity block (the Hub2) with inclusive change rooms, officiating rooms, canteen, storage rooms and event administrational spaces and offices to service the new fields
  • Extension of the amenity block between Field 1 and 2 at the Coffs Coast Sport and Leisure Park to include two new regional standard inclusive change rooms, officials rooms, storage room and canteen
  • Car park and access road for the new fields and much needed major event parking
  • Linkages and connectivity throughout the precinct which incorporates new shared paths for pedestrian and cycle traffic around the facility and between the precinct and the education and health campuses

Coffs Harbour Mayor Councillor Paul Amos was ecstatic about what the Regional Sports Hub will do for local sport participation and enthused “these excellent facilities here at the Coffs Coast Sport and Leisure Park are truly world-class and will further cement our reputation as one of the sporting leaders of regional Australia.

“This project has delivered a comprehensive range of sporting facilities that cater to local through to elite requirements.

“My thanks go out to the Council staff and contractors - many of whom are local - who were able to deliver this amazing project, along with the NSW Government in helping to get it off the ground.”

Local State Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh added “I congratulate Coffs Harbour City Council on delivering another outstanding sporting precinct for our city, thanks to $10 million from the NSW Government’s Regional Sports Infrastructure Fund.

“The Coffs Coast has always been a leader in providing new and upgraded sporting facilities – the Coffs Coast Regional Sports Hub is an inclusive, world-class sport and recreation venue for all.

“It will boost our tourism industry by bringing bigger and better events for the region and in so doing, create more jobs right here on the Coffs Coast.”
