The Traralgon Croquet Club and Morwell's Synthetic Soccer Pitch have been opened

The Traralgon Croquet Club and Latrobe City Sports and Entertainment Stadium Complex have both seen major sporting projects officially opened.

A fully FIFA-accredited synthetic pitch is now open at the Latrobe City Sports and Entertainment Stadium, which will be used by local clubs as well as becoming home to elite pathway clubs such as Gippsland FC.

The project features a 105 metre x 68 metre pitch, removable goals, perimeter pathways, storage areas, player and officials benches, sports lighting for evening play and training and a six-metre high net along Crinigan Road.

The pitch allows for 11-a-side, nine-a-side and seven-a-side soccer matches and can cater for a range of other sports as well.

The upgrades will allow the site to continue attracting and hosting major events including Melbourne Victory A-League pre-season and W-League in-season matches.

Traralgon Croquet's Breed Street base of 60 years was utilized as part of the $57 million Gippsland Regional Aquatic Centre project, with the Latrobe City Council facilitating a move to the Glenview Park sporting precinct.

The move was made possible through the Victorian Government’s $85 million Latrobe Valley Sports and Community Initiative administrated by Latrobe Valley Authority.
