Shape of future at Centre of Excellence
Words by Nick Crockford

The region's new $22 million Centre of Excellence for Women’s Football is fast taking shape at Brendale.

Latest video shows the outlines of four new fields, floodlight poles, two clubhouses and new pathways at South Pine Sports Complex.

Plans are for Brisbane Roar and Albany Creek Excelsior/Moreton Bay United to share the facilities, with each having three fields on a six-pitch lower precinct.

The two local clubs - in the state's second and top tiers respectively - currently share a clubhouse and fields on the upper and lower precincts at Brendale, as well as Wolter Park.

Completion of the new ACE/Moreton Bay United clubhouse is currently set for July, though all dates are subject to change and the impact of weather.

It is currently proposed to lay the turf on the new ACE/Moreton Bay United fields also in July, with establishment by November.

Concrete paths and a small footbridge, leading from the main sports complex, have been finished and are open.

New road and car park works, to the north, east and south of the fields, is targeted for completion by September 2023.

The Centre of Excellence is being built on a former turf farm on Cribb Rd, in Brendale. 

Once all expansion plans have been completed, South Pine Sports Complex will be one of biggest venues of its kind in Queensland with more than 20 sports.
