Opening of Synthetic Field at Strathfield Park

For immediate release
13 March 2018

Strathfield Council in conjunction with Strathfield Football Club will mark the beginning of the soccer season with an official opening of the new synthetic field at Strathfield Park.

The synthetic field is an all-weather playing field, consistently left with a perfect surface, rain, hail or shine, enabling increased community usage.  While natural turf requires a period of recovery after average utilisation of 25 hours a week, the synthetic field can endure heavy use of 60 hours per week, allowing residents more enjoyment of the field and the benefits of fitness through sports and passive recreation.

The community event to be held on Saturday 17 March will feature a ribbon cutting, soccer games for kids, a BBQ and opportunity to meet Sydney FC players.

Following the opening, the Strathfield Strikers FC will play a feature match.
