With construction soon to begin at the Logan Metro Sports Complex, Logan Metro Football Club will in 2015 be temporarily moving to Compton Park in Woodridge.
Compton Park will act as the home ground for LMFC from the start of the 2015 pre- season through to the point in which the Logan Metro Sports Complex is ready to use again.
The sports complex, which is undergoing a multi-million dollar refurbishment and will also play host to the Brisbane Broncos’ Logan Academy when completed, will provide top-class facilities for Logan.
In the meantime, however, Compton Park is a ground rich in history and one in which LMFC President Samuel Escobar says the club is honoured to call home.
“Compton Park is a great venue which has been a home of football in the area for many years, and one which we can’t wait to adopt as our own,” Escobar said.
“The park acted as a training venue for the Under 21 Uruguay national team in 1993 while they were in Brisbane to play Australia as part of the FIFA World Youth Championships, and now hosts a variety of community football, a great deal of which features multicultural teams which makes it a perfect venue for us.”
“We owe enormous thanks to the Rodelu club for being so welcoming and supportive of our football club and the Logan City Council for their support in the transition.”
“We can’t wait to engage with the community in the area and prepare for an incredibly exciting 2015 season.”
The Rodelu club, based at Compton Park, are also thrilled to see the club move across. “We’ve heard great things about LMFC and are very excited to be housing them in 2015 and helping the club grow,” President of the club Nelson Santa Cruz said.
