The view of Kinsellas Sports Complex at North Lakes has never looked so good after the official opening of the new tiered seating project that raises the spectator experience.

The $1 million upgrade, delivered by City of Moreton Bay, with joint funding support from State Government’s South East Queensland Community Stimulus Program, gives the North Lakes United Football Club greater access and opportunity to cheer on their teams.

Mayor Peter Flannery said he is proud to be able to support the growth and infrastructure improvements for Moreton Bay’s sport-loving community.

“The Moreton Bay community thrives on an active lifestyle and cheering on our local teams is a key part of that,” Mayor Flannery said.

 “Whether you’re a family, friend or fan, the revitalisation of Kinsellas Sports Complex opens up more opportunity for everyone to participate.

“In one of the fastest growing regions in Australia, and with the 2032 Olympics and Paralympics approaching, it’s imperative that our city continues to invest in the infrastructure that supports our sporting community.

“Who knows, we might even see the next Cortnee Vine representing Australia on home soil.”

Deputy Mayor Jodie Shipway (Div 4) said the revamp of this Kinsellas Sports Complex is something many local sporting families, clubs and volunteers will be cheering about.

“I'm a sport-loving mum of two boys who both play locally, so I know how important it is to have this kind of infrastructure,” she said.

“The new sheltered tiered seating and viewing deck provides families, fans and large crowds a more comfortable and accessible way to move about the facility and cheer on from the sidelines.

“The adjoining ramp has also created a safer, more efficient access point for volunteers to transfer equipment from storage sheds to the playing fields.

“I hope this investment into amazing sporting facilities like this attracts more interest in local football.”
