Big screen completes Central Coast Stadium

Renovation work on Central Coast Stadium, home to Australian A-League football club Central Coast Mariners, has come to a close with the addition of a new video board.

The 86sq-metre upgraded screen is double the size of the previous one in an effort to boost the stadium’s fan experience.

The new video board will be able to live stream breaking news and current events before, during and after play, while also allowing the 20,059-capacity stadium to house movie nights without the need for a secondary screen.

Central Coast Mariners chief executive Shaun Mielekamp said: “This is our home and we’re passionate about seeing this stadium become the very best it can be for the community.

“Everyone that comes here now is going to have a better experience than they have ever had. We’re very excited about the next steps and it’s good to know there is plenty more to come.”

Central Coast Council director of assets, infrastructure and business Mike Dowling said, according to the Daily Telegraph newspaper: “We will be able to draw on more resources than previously and our focus is on the broader community.

“We’ve upgraded many of the corporate suites, and many of the general public will begin to notice upgraded amenities, and all the food concessions are going to be upgraded.”

The stadium also plays host to rugby league and rugby union fixtures on an ad hoc basis, as well as other major social events.
