We’re currently developing a plan for the future of Central Coast Stadium – the Central Coast Stadium Strategy.
As part of this process we have consulted with a range of stakeholders including Councillors, Stadium staff, commercial hirers, community hirers, venue operators and the wider community.
We have developed a draft strategy, which outlines the objectives and options for the ongoing management of the Stadium, as well as a potential naming rights sponsor.
From 1-28 September 2020, we placed the draft strategy on public exhibition, and asked the community to provide their feedback. In total, we received 17 submissions.
We are currently reviewing these submissions and finalising the document before it goes to Council for adoption.
