Additional $13 million for Jubilee Oval redevelopment

Additional $13 million for Jubilee Oval redevelopment
October 12, 2010

The WIN Jubilee Oval in the Sydney suburb of Kogarah, the home ground of NRL Premiers St George Illawarra Dragons, is to receive an addition $13 million in funding from the NSW Government.

The NSW Government has already invested more than $12 million to upgrade the stadium, with the new fuding bringing that total to more than $25 million.

The $13 million will go towards the completion of a final range of works that include:

• A new northern grandstand with 1,372 undercover seats;
• New toilet and concession facilities;
• New change rooms for first grade and Under 20s players;
• New corporate area and boxes; and
• A new museum and merchandise outlet.

NSW Premier Kristina Keneally yesterday joined Kogarah MP Cherie Burton, St George Illawarra Dragons Chief Executive, Peter Doust and St George Illawarra Dragons players to announce the additional funding

NSW Minister for Sport and Recreation and Oatley MP Kevin Greene said the massive infrastructure investment is great news for the entire community, not just rugby league fans, players and clubs, stating "WIN Jubilee Oval is a major asset for the St George region thatâs used not only by the mighty 2010 Premiership winning Dragons but also by sporting groups, community groups and local schools.

"The completion of the upgrade will ensure this iconic sporting ground and community facility will keep meeting the needs of the local community."

Premier Keneally said spectators at this yearâs games and the 2010 grand final live site demonstrated the importance of the stadium to the St George Illawarra Dragons players and fans, stating âthe new southern grandstand which opened last year has already given the ground a major boost.�?

Peter Doust added "I am very pleased on behalf of our Dragons Red V Members and supporters that the NSW Government has funded the completion of Stage 3 of the Master Plan Re-development of WIN Jubilee Oval, Kogarah in accordance with the already approved development application.

"Completion of Stage 3 will provide improved quality of services for patrons and ensure WIN Jubilee Oval remains a high quality community asset for the long term."
