In attendance was Premier of South Australia, Steven Marshall, Federal MP James Stevens, Mayor Robert Bria, Club President Paul Di lulio and Wolf Blass AO.

The formal opening took place in the Norwood Function Room upstairs which the audience heard from several guest speakers mentioned above, before heading downstairs to watch Wolf Blass cut the ribbon in the foyer.

A celebration took place after, with guests invited for refreshments and a chance to catch up and celebrate in the Premiers Bar.

Norwood President Paul Di lulio said the Official opening of the facility was a special moment for everybody involved.

“Friday was a significant day in the club’s history,” Di lulio said.

“It was a chance for us to gather in our new clubrooms and thank those who supported this project right from the very start.

“As a club, it’s worthy to note that Mr Wolf Blass and the late Bill and Jo Cooper have made significant contributions to the development which has now translated into the amazing facility we have today.

“We couldn’t be prouder to be involved with such generous and amazing people, and once again we thank them for their contribution to our remarkable new home.”
