Sunshine Coast AFL and netball players are the big winners with state-of-the-art new facilities to enjoy, after a $3.1 million upgrade to the Maroochydore Multi Sports Complex.

The completed new AFL facility includes a two-level building consisting of two unisex change rooms and amenities, first aid and medical rooms, unisex umpire change room and amenities, public amenities, and administration offices.

The existing netball building has also received an upgrade, with an upper level added for training and administration. In addition, a former store room has been converted to a parent’s room.

The Maroochydore Multi Sports Complex upgrade is funded with $2.55 million from council’s $320 million Capital Works Program, with a funding contribution of $300,000 from Sunshine Coast Netball Association. $250,000 in funds from the AFL’s $450,000 contribution to various projects in partnership with council were also utilised.
