Stage 3 of the La Trobe Sports Park redevelopment is getting underway, with artist impressions revealing the future Home of the Matildas, and work officially commencing on new community football and baseball facilities at Charles La Trobe College.
Last month, Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events Martin Pakula revealed artist impressions for the $101.1 million project as early works continue on site.
The major redevelopment will see La Trobe University’s Sports Park facility in Bundoora become the national base for Football Australia's national women's programs, including the Home of the Matildas, and the State Centres for Football Victoria and Rugby Victoria.
The Home of the Matildas is due for completion by March 2023, in time for the venue to be a Team Base Camp ahead of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023.
“It’s exciting to see this major development start to take shape at our world-class Sports Park, delivering even greater benefits to our students and the community in Melbourne’s north. We can’t wait to welcome the Matildas, Football Victoria and Rugby Victoria to La Trobe.”
- John Dewar, Vice-Chancellor of La Trobe University
