The newly-transformed Eagle Stadium will be the biggest of its kind in Melbourne’s west, giving clubs and families the sport and recreation facilities they deserve.
Minister for Sport, John Eren, today joined Wyndham City Council Mayor, Peter Maynard, in unveiling stage one of the major project that will see the old Werribee Sports and Fitness Centre transformed into a state-of-the-art multi-purpose venue.
Stage one works take the total number of multi-purpose indoor courts to eight, while four outdoor netball courts have also been added.
New public amenities, car parking and café space are also provided by the Labor Government’s $650,000 Community Facility Funding Program investment.
Venues like Eagle Stadium connect our suburbs and towns, giving families the chance to socialise and kids the experiences that stay with them for life.
The Labor Government’s investment gives Werribee extra opportunities to host big state and regional competitions, boosting tourism and creating jobs.
The project is being funded in partnership with Wyndham City Council and the Federal Government.
