A premiership outcome for Clarence

Clarence City Council has welcomed the Tasmanian Government announcement of Rosny being chosen as the home of the Tasmania Football Club training and administration facilities.

Clarence City Council Mayor, Brendan Blomeley, said for the city, today’s announcement is the equivalent of winning the premiership.

“The opportunity this provides us is enormous and game changing for our city,” Mayor Blomeley said.

“An AFL High Performance Centre in Clarence will deliver social and economic benefits to the city like we have never seen before.

“There were strong and well-presented options put forward by both Clarence City and Kingborough councils. The AFL and Tasmanian Government have really been spoilt for choice.

“Both council’s options were the result of a significant amount of work by council staff across the two councils, hours of stakeholder discussions and extensive community consultation.

“We thought we put forward a great proposal, encompassing two mirrored options, and are delighted to be chosen as the preferred location.

“The building of the High Performance Centre in Rosny opens a wide range of possibilities for the surrounding businesses in Rosny and Bellerive, Rosny College, and future development.

“It also provides Clarence City Council the opportunity to design the Parkland space around the Centre and through our City Heart plan, build something truly wonderful for our community, that will be a source of pride for generations.

“For every young child in Tasmania dreaming of making their AFL or AFLW debut, this state-of-the-art facility will be a beacon of inspiration and drive to achieve that goal, and we are very excited for it to be in Clarence.”
