After years of constantly being forced to watch from the sidelines due to flooding, the Redcliffe Tigers AFC finally have reason to celebrate.

The club's new modern facilities have home and away change rooms, umpire change rooms, full amenities, club room with kitchen/canteen and the new MCG sized field with full lighting.

Redcliffe Tigers AFC club president Scott Stanford said the new lights were all LED, whereas at the old grounds they had bulky incandescent bulbs that were expensive to run.

“We’re looking at investigating the possibility of a solar system on the roof and hopefully at the end of the day make us a carbon neutral AFL facility,” Scott said.

“This would probably make us the first AFL club in the country to achieve this, which would be a feather in the cap for the Redcliffe Football Club and the Peninsula itself.”

The club’s committee and masters (over 35’s) had reportedly worked tirelessly in recent years to build a successful community cultured club.

Scott said if they had a kid turn up who was a handful, but were able to build them into a better person, to be respectful of themselves and peers, then success off the field occurred.

“They then bring that discipline onto the field and that’s where you get your success,” he said.

The club was ready to host a grand opening of their new purpose-built, state-of-the-art facility on 25 April, but have now postponed the event until further notice.

The Redcliffe Guide will report on the new date for the club's grand opening event once it has been decided, so keep an eye out for it in future issues.
