Being a member of the SUNS just went to another level.

After announcing a membership record, today the SUNS launched a new activation at Metricon Stadium - the Metricon Plungie Pool Deck - that provides families with the ultimate family day (or night) and will be officially unveiled at tonight’s game. 

To celebrate the membership record, the SUNS have formed a partnership with Plungie that will see a new plunge pool given to a lucky SUNS member.

The Metricon Plungie Pool Deck activation will now feature in the stands and, in June 2021, there will be a prize draw and one lucky SUNS member will win their own Plungie, just like the one in the Stadium. 

Gold Coast SUNS CEO Mark Evans said this is a fun, generous collaboration between Metricon Homes and Plungie to create the ‘Metricon Plungie Pool Deck’.

“Where else but the Gold Coast could you enjoy a game of AFL football in a stadium from your own pool deck,” he said. 

“The Metricon Plungie Pool Deck will make watching the footy even better for some lucky fans and I am sure once people see it, they are going to want one themselves.

“Our SUNS supporters signed up as members in force this year and gifting one of them a top-quality plungie pool is a great way to say ‘thanks’.”

In a matter of days, Plungie, manufacturer of Australia’s fastest, easiest and highest quality concrete pools, installed the 6m x 3m pool and deck in the Stadium, providing fans with the ultimate experience to watch and swim on the sidelines.

‘Enjoy your pool in days, not months’ is Plungie’s promise and they delivered, installing the pool and decking surrounds in less than three days. 

Jason Biasin, Director at Metricon said the activation would make the Metricon Stadium experience even more atmospheric and would be a really fun addition to game day. 

“More families across Australia choose to build with Metricon than any other builder and, because a home and pool go hand in hand, we will soon be offering Plungie pools as an option when building a Metricon home,” he said.

General Manager of Plungie Ben Petersen said they are excited about these new partnerships.

“We believe that every Australian deserves a pool, and because so many Australians choose to build with Metricon, that’s now being made possible,’ he said.
