More players will benefit from upgrades to changerooms and toilets while new solar panels and skylights will ensure this project provides players have the facilities they need to succeed for generations to come.

From elite soccer to live music, the Gippsland Sports and Entertainment Park is a major sport and entertainment hub for the region, used by Melbourne Victory and for wrestling tournaments, concerts, expos and more.

A major upgrade will deliver a new pavilion and upgraded pitches complete with lighting and increased visitor capacity, boosting local jobs and businesses and the region’s economy as thousands of visitors flock to Gippsland to see their favourite sport and entertainment stars.

The Gippsland Sports Package is also delivering 2 more sports venue upgrades in Gippsland – including the Ted Summerton Reserve in Moe, which will benefit from a refurbished oval, lighting, amenities, and terraces while the Morwell Gun Club will also be boosted by a new shotgun trap shooting range and safety upgrades.

These projects will help increase sports participation among the Gippsland community and bring more elite sport to regional Victoria, supporting local businesses.

Further updates on the projects will be provided in the coming months, with first works to kick off later this year.
