NSW football organisations partner with Ausco Modular to deliver new generation change rooms and facilities

NSW football organisations partner with Ausco Modular to deliver new generation change rooms and facilities
July 20, 2019

Looking to meet increasing participant demand for facilities, Football NSW and Northern NSW Football have announced a partnership with modular construction company, Ausco Modular, to deliver high-specification change rooms and facilities for all club levels across NSW.

In order to support the growing infrastructure needs of football clubs across NSW, especially with the rise of female participation in recent years, Football NSW and Northern NSW Football recently completed a detailed analysis of every football venue in NSW, including clubrooms, change rooms and match official amenities, to develop a Football Infrastructure Strategy for the period of 2020-2030.

As the Official Modular Facilities Partner for the two governing bodies, Ausco Modular will design and deliver building solutions that will broaden participation and support growth in football by improving the quality, access and condition of football facilities and amenities.

Announcing the partnership, Football NSW Chief Executive, Stuart Hodge stated “we’re delighted to partner with Ausco Modular.

“With over 22% of football venues not having change rooms, 64% not having referees room and only 12% of changerooms being female-friendly, we look forward to developing football-specific facilities and increasing the quality of football infrastructure in NSW.”

David Eland, Chief Executive at NNSW Football, added “football engages with so many individuals in every suburb across NSW, which makes facility improvements such as amenity upgrades at the grassroots level vital to football and entire communities.

“We welcome the partnership and look forward to working with the team from AUSCO.”

Ausco Modular Executive General Manager, Adrian Moffatt, said Ausco is excited to be assisting Football NSW and Northern NSW Football with the implementation of their Football Infrastructure Strategy and helping clubs to facilitate their need for new or upgraded facilities.

Moffatt explained “the lower build cost, significant time-savings, our in-house design services and end-to-end project management makes Ausco Modular sporting facilities perfect for clubs where administrative and playing resources are already stretched.”
