Build the Fort Update

Wolf Blass Community Centre Update – February

Welcome to 2020!

From a recent inspection of the works with The Premier, Steven Marshall and the man himself, Wolf Blass, there is no doubt we are creating something very special for many generations to come. There will be no better place to have a Coopers Beer or Barossa Boy wine and watch our beloved Redlegs than in the Wolf Blass Community Centre. At this current time construction has taken a little longer than expected, however as they say ‘good things come to those that wait.’

The gym has now been renovated and available for use by the players. All structural walls within our change rooms have now been built.

There is no doubt the new rooms will be the envy of all Clubs with the improved medical and physio areas, ice baths and locker room. In the recent walk through with Coach Jarrod Cotton, he was extremely impressed with the way the players briefing room has been renovated, he will now be able to deliver his message without columns in the way!

Upstairs, the offices and reception area are starting to take shape as well as the new board room which will overlook the gym area and provide a wonderful opportunity to see the players warming up on match days.

Under the western stand will take on a very different look as we now have a continuous tunnel, a new first aid room, match day office and kiosk. Works are commencing on completely renovating the toilets to ensure they meet today’s standards. All in all, this is a very exciting time for the football club and one which will significantly improve the matchday experience!

There is no doubt the fantastic relationship between the Football Club, NPSP Council and Schiavello is leading to an excellent outcome, that we will enjoy for many years to come!

We are still looking to raise money for the build so if you haven’t purchased a picket please contact the Club. For as little as $250 you can have your own piece of Norwood Oval forever ($200 is tax-deductible). To purchase a picket click here, or call the club on 8362 6278.
