Work set to start on new soccer pavilion

4 Apr, 2022

The development of the Baranduda Fields sporting precinct is about to reach another milestone, with work to start this month on the site’s new soccer pavilion.

The ground floor of the multistorey pavilion will feature a dual-facing grandstand, training and coaches’ rooms, a canteen and change rooms for men, women and officials.

The second floor will include a viewing balcony, a conference room, toilets, a social room catering for 180 people, and a kitchen and bar.

Preliminary site works on the pavilion will start in May, to be followed by the development of two associated playing fields which will include lighting, fencing and irrigation.

The pavilion grandstand will seat 520 people, with 450 seats facing the main oval and 70 seats looking over the second oval.

The total project cost is $8.4 million.

Set on 100ha of council-owned land, Baranduda Fields will be the largest regional sporting precinct between Sydney and Melbourne.

A model providing a 3D view of how stage one will look when completed is now on display in the foyer of the council offices in Hovell Street. 

Plantation trees on the site have been cleared with the timber to be used for a variety of purposes, including mulch for the city’s parks and gardens, and as restored habitat for fish in local streams.  

Wodonga Council secured $10 million in funding for Baranduda Fields from the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications in March 2020.

The council will add a further $10 million in funding over the next three years from the capital works budget to deliver stage  one.
