Footy club floodlights create new opportunities
After years of waiting, the Flinders Park Football Club finally has four brand-new lighting towers at its western Adelaide home.
Each of the four towers features six LED lights; their combined power has chased away the dark, making after-hours training and games an exciting new option for the club’s many men’s and women’s teams.
(It’s not just football we’re taking about either – the FPFC also has a heap of netball and cricket teams.)
The project took five years to complete, and cost $226,000. The Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing contributed $97,000 with a grant under the 2017-18 round of the Community Recreation and Sport Facilities Program.
The new lighting rigs have been a boon to the club’s balance sheets, cutting its power bills and freeing up some much-needed cash to spend on new equipment.
