The Gold Coast SUNS on Saturday officially revealed the club’s AFLW changerooms with the support of Minister for Housing and Public Works, Minister for Digital Technology, and Minister for Sport, the Hon. Mick de Brenni MP.
Minister de Brenni was on hand to make the announcement at the club’s first ever AFLW home game at Metricon Stadium after the changerooms were completed late last year.
Gold Coast SUNS Chief Executive Mark Evans said that the club was committed to providing its female players with the same opportunities as the male players.
“Thanks to the support of Minister de Brenni and the State Government, our AFLW program is fully integrated as part of our Training and Administration base,” Evans said.
“To be able to offer our female players the exact same training facilities as our men’s program, is something that as a club we’re extremely proud of.
“Having the AFLW changerooms within our training facility, the Austworld Centre, allows our players the opportunity to utilise some of the highest quality training and recovery facilities in the country.”
The Queensland State Government’s investment in the changeroom project is part of their commitment to encourage more women and girls into participation in sports and recreation activities.
