The home of Logan Lightning Football Club is receiving a near $5 million makeover, providing the ground with “much-needed” facility upgrades.

Works have begun on a new $4.8 million clubhouse for the club at Chris Green Park.

Once completed, the facility will include four changerooms, outdoor viewing areas, a clubroom, canteen, referees’ room, office, storage room, spectator amenities and a first aid room.

Local councillor Karen Murphy said Logan Lighting was one of the largest community sporting clubs in the city.

“Logan Lightning supports nearly 1000 members across two venues, and it will be great to see their clubhouse at Chris Green Park upgraded to better serve their growing membership,” Cr Murphy said.

Construction also began last month on a clubhouse for the Jimboomba Thunder Junior Rugby League Club, which local councillor Scott Bannan has long called for.

This $4.3 million project will see a clubroom, additional changerooms, outdoor viewing areas, canteen, referees’ room, office, storage room, spectator amenities and a first aid room.

Mayor Darren Power said both investments would breathe new life into two longstanding local clubs.

“Our grassroots sporting clubs play an important role in the health and wellbeing of the community, and it will be fantastic to see these two clubs boosted with new facilities,” Cr Power said.
