  • Why invest in the stadium?

    over 1 year ago
    Building an epic stadium for the future project

    THE recent announcement that Council was successful in its bid for Federal funding towards a $13.4m upgrade of the C.ex Coffs International has rightly been lauded as fantastic news for the city, for sport and for the region's economy.

    But you may ask yourself - why is Council spending money at the Stadium again?

    It's a question that does come up and I'd like to outline why it is so important to improve its facilities to maintain the Stadium's reputation as one of Australia's premier regional event venues.
