Greenbank is soon to have a new $10 million AFL field.

Everleigh AFL Oval will be 5.5 hectares, developed by Mirvac in partnership with Logan City Council and AFL Queensland.

There will be a full-sized field and warm-up oval, expected to be finished 2022.

The field will be co-located with the new Everleigh State School which opens in January.

Logan City councillor Natalie Willcocks said AFL had the highest participation rate among juniors in Queensland, but there were no fields in the area.

“The addition of new sporting fields, and eventually a sporting precinct, will increase opportunities for residents to access a range of new facilities that will promote active and healthy lifestyles,” Cr Willcocks said. 

AFL Queensland facilities and government manager Cobey Moore said it was essential to get the facilities right, as they are crucial in helping clubs attract and retain players.
