In a win for grassroots football, Football NSW, Northern NSW Football and leading national modular construction company, Ausco Modular, have partnered to deliver high-specification changerooms and facilities for all club levels.
A dramatic surge in grassroots sports participation, especially in female leagues has highlighted the growing infrastructure needs of football clubs across New South Wales.
To support future planning Football NSW and Northern NSW Football recently completed a detailed analysis of every football venue in NSW, including clubrooms, change rooms and match official amenities, to develop a Football Infrastructure Strategy for the period of 2020–2030.
Ausco Modular has collaborated with Football NSW and Northern NSW Football as their Official Modular Facilities Partner and will work closely with the infrastructure team to design and deliver building solutions that will broaden participation and support growth in football by improving the quality, access and condition of football facilities and amenities across New South Wales. Ausco Modular delivers facilities up to 60% faster and more efficiently than traditional site-built construction methods and at 15-30% less cost.
“We’re delighted to partner with Ausco Modula said Stuart Hodge, CEO Football NSW. With over 22% of football venues not having change rooms, 64% not having referees room and only 12% of changerooms being female friendly, we look forward to developing football specific facilities and increasing the quality of football infrastructure in NSW” he said.
David Eland, CEO Northern NSW Football was equally enthused by the partnership. “Football engages with so many individuals in every suburb across NSW which makes facility improvements such as amenity upgrades, at the grassroots level are vital to football and entire communities, we welcome the partnership and look forward to working with the team from AUSCO.” he said.
Ausco Modular Executive, Adrian Moffatt, said Ausco is excited to be assisting Football NSW and Northern NSW Football with the implementation of their Football Infrastructure Strategy and helping clubs to facilitate their need for new or upgraded facilities.
“The lower build cost, significant time-savings, our in-house design services and end-to-end project management makes Ausco Modular sporting facilities perfect for clubs where administrative and playing resources are already stretched,” he said.
