A $1.5 million synthetic soccer pitch will be built at Narre Warren South P-12 College for community use.
Addressing the dire shortage of soccer pitches, the floodlit facility will be available for training and matches by students and the community at large.
It is funded by the State Government’s $50 million Shared Facilities Fund used for building community assets on school grounds.
Narre Waren South MP Judith Couacaud Graley said the pitch would ensure “more young people get to hit the pitch and shoot for goal”.
“Hopefully, the new pitch will help unearth Australia’s next soccer star like Harry Kewell or Tim Cahill.”
College principal Rob Duncan said it was particularly “terrific news” for local sporting clubs.
“(They) will be able to share outstanding soccer facilities in an area where there are few proper amenities for soccer.
“It will also be a fantastic resource for our students to use on a daily basis.”
