Adelaide Olympic Football Club is now tenant of the new APEX football stadium, formerly known as VALO Football Centre.
As part of the move to the State Center for Football at Gepps Cross, Football SA has officially handed over the keys to the site at Angle Park.
The venue opened in 2015 and has previously hosted Australian Cup matches, Women’s NPLSA, RAA NPLSA and community events such as talent identification carnivals, regional camps and the Australian Cup. RAA Nations Africa.
At the time of its construction, the venue was the second full-size synthetic pitch in South Australia. Since 2015, the facility has been expanded with the installation of a second synthetic pitch accompanied by a grandstand.
Football South Australia CEO Michael Carter was extremely happy to hand over the facilities to Adelaide Olympic.
“The Parks Football Center (now known as Apex Stadium) handed over to Adelaide Olympic was a legacy of the creation of the State Center for Football. I am so happy for Adelaide Olympic to have its own quality home.
Adelaide Olympic Chairman Stavros Parissos said:
“From 23 junior players, without uniforms and serving drinks on a trestle table on a foreign pitch 10 years ago, to being a premier club with successful MiniRoos, Juniors and Senior teams, including back-to-back champions of the Cup and now the consolidation of all of our operations at APEX Football Stadium, I couldn’t be prouder.
This could not have happened without the support of our volunteers and supporters, the South Australian State Labor Government, Office of Recreation and Sport & Football South Australia.”
A process has been initiated to change the name of the location on Google Maps and on all live streams.
