Bingera Football Club to receive upgrades for centenary year
Refurbished playing surfaces and a lighting upgrade at their Bundaberg North training field are anticipated to be completed for Bingera Football Club’s 2022 season and centenary year.
With a history dating from 1922, the club is building quality facilities surrounding its clubhouse, kitchen and dressing rooms, allowing the club to host more carnivals, coaching clinics and events while attracting new players to the club.
Bingera Football Club President Karl Zimmerlie notes “facility improvements are vital for growing our player and volunteer base, and for helping our young players on their journey to becoming Socceroos and Matildas.
“We are hoping to build on our current membership of 114 mini-roos, 30 juniors and 67 senior players, in addition to all our volunteers, coaches and managers.
“We have multiple men’s and ladies’ teams, and junior teams from under six right through to under 18’s.
“With field two becoming operational, we will be able to play ladies and men’s games simultaneously and split our time over two fields rather than hammering our main field all the time."
Queensland Sport Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said the upgrade would help celebrate the club's 100 years adding “this is a great community and family orientated club where the members are known throughout the local competition as the Stripeys.
“By upgrading the grounds, the club will be able play two games together at the same time, and on training days have multiple sessions for the men’s, ladies and junior teams.
“Work on the ground is expected to get started later this year and be ready for the 2022 football season and the club’s centenary year.”
Member for Bundaberg Tom Smith said the upgrade of Bingera Football Club was part of a $200,000 election commitment and advised “planning has already started for the upgrade of the training fields plus a lighting upgrade which means the Stripeys can better utilise both fields and support the club’s future growth.”
Zimmerlie added “I would like to thank Football Queensland for their support in getting this funding approved and to the Queensland Government for helping deliver the project.”
