25 June 2015 Happy Birthday C.ex Coffs Stadium

Today (25 June) the C.ex Coffs International Stadium marked its 21st birthday with a celebration for the pioneers, volunteers, past and current staff, sporting organisations and all those who have been instrumental in making the venue the success it is today.

 

“The Stadium has been a triumph for the city and community of Coffs Harbour,” said Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight.

 

“It has brought world-class sport and world-class professionals into our midst where they have proved a huge inspiration for our youth, as well as players and fans of all ages. It also injects many, many millions of dollars into the regional economy each year by bringing thousands of visitors to the area.

 

“The Stadium’s versatility as a sporting ground is legendary – and has been proved time and time again by the variety of sports that have been played there.

 

“There is no doubt now that Coffs Harbour’s C.ex Coffs International Stadium is seen as the regional venue of choice for almost all sporting codes – not least because of the amazing volunteers who are the backbone of the operation.

 

“So the biggest congratulations should go to all those who have been involved in the Stadium’s development over the years into the fantastic venue we have today.

 

“Their vision – and that of the current and former Stadium Members – has taken the Stadium to where it is today. Happy 21st C.ex Coffs International Stadium!”

 

Some of the major and diverse events that have taken place at the Stadium over the years include: the Australian Masters Games, the Sikh Games, the Olympic Torch Relay, the British Lions v NSW Country Cockatoos, ING Cup Cricket, the Crusty Demons, Country v City NRL, the AFL NAB Challenge, Nitro Circus, first National Oztag Championships, Beijing Olympic Qualifiers featuring the Matildas, WRC Coates World Rally Service HQ and the Touch World Cup.
