Is 30 million the total cost of the project or just the councils contribution towards the project?

You don’t get a lot for 30 million when doing a redevelopment of this scale. Anyway, about time and it’s a win win for our club and Canada Bay
Penriths COE cost $30 mill by itself.
I got to tour Penriths COE last Thursday with my young blokes footy team .Dallin Watene - Zelezniak was our tour guide ( nice kid)

30 mill doesn’t get you much .
The main gym was very impressive as was the training field next to the centre .
The rest of the facilities were bog average at best ...
Plunge pools
Wrestling area
Ice baths
Change rooms and media rooms were all very basic .
We need mongrel ..
No more plodders !

Pascoe helped deliver Penriths COE. I'm sure he'll be working hard to ensure our facilities are just as good.
What was did role in that?
I couldn't say the specifics, but he was in senior management at the Panthers when it was delivered. CCO and then 'head of NRL'... whatever that means.

It's supposed to be state-of-the-art? By reports anyway.

Good point Steve, there is no commencement date of proposed finish date in the article... Huge disruption for a couple of years
Disruption to what, our apparently crap facilities and ordinary gym?

Their COE sits underneath the Western Stand doesn't it Hobbs?

You'd think some of the $30m would be reworking the existing structure as well.

Nah ... the new COE is behind the club itself adjacent to the aqua golf pond

There old gym was underneath the western stand adjacent to mulgoa rd

The new COE is just like a modern apartment complex inside tbh .
Change rooms , tv / lounge room etc

The gym was outstanding though complete with a hyperbaric chamber which cost 200k ( I was told)

I took pics of the gym but I’m too dumb to upload them lol

The gym at concord looks like a POW set up compared to what I seen at Penrith, but if it cost them $30 mill ...I’m in the wrong trade !

Ah OK, I don't frequent Penrith much anymore, much less Panthers so I wouldn't know haha.

Yeah our gym is pretty substandard to be kind.

If the Tigers don't have to tip in any money for the actual build and they have that further State Govt grant (as well as the WT Foundation $$), we may have one heck of a fit-out.

Cheers Sabre, you gotta tip your hat to a club that can fund a COE of that size by itself. Less than 12 months construction aswell.

Penrith's COE cost 22 mil, Newcastle's is costing 20 mil. At 30 mil we should able to squeeze a bit more in - if Canada Bay is also contributing then perhaps more still.

Pokies money. It's the Leagues Club that's funding all the football club's facilities.

Ok let me rephrase - I won't tip my hat to things bought with gambling money, particularly where pokies are concerned.

We get millions from Ashfield and Crownbet. I have no problems with it.

I guess you won't be tipping your hat to 90% of things in Rugby League then.
