Works commenced on-site in mid October 2020 and construction is due to be completed prior to the commencement of the 2022 NRL season.

The Sea Eagles will continue to play home games at Lottoland throughout the 2021 NRL season.

The development of this facility will secure the future of the Sea Eagles in the heart of the Northern Beaches.

The new facilities will support Club development, both on and off the field, whilst also bolstering future ambitions of launching a women’s NRL team, further enhancing youth sporting development, and expanding community programs and initiatives.

Key Features:

  • 3,000 seat undercover grandstand.
  • High performance gym and training centre.
  • Medical and sports rehabilitation facilities.
  • Administration offices and meeting rooms.
  • Multi-purpose community and education area.
  • Facilities for youth and female sports participation.

The total cost of the investment is $33.1m and the project is being jointly funded by the State Government, Federal Government and the Sea Eagles.

Contributing Back to the Community

A dedicated and multi-purpose community space will enable Manly Warringah Sea Eagles to further expand community programs and initiatives, increasing reach and contributing even more positive impact within the community.

The Sea Eagles are committed to raising further awareness of healthy lifestyles, fostering self-esteem, positive behaviour and mental health amongst young people.

Managing the Impacts

The Sea Eagles acknowledge that living near a sports stadium can be challenging and the management of traffic, noise and other impacts on amenity in and around the precinct is important for residents.

Traffic Impact Assessments have been undertaken as part of the planning application and the advice received is that the Centre of Excellence and Northern Grandstand will not add to current parking and traffic.

The Centre of Excellence will provide parking for staff and visitors, which will be located on the corner of Alfred Street and Federal Parade.

The new Northern Grandstand will not change the capacity of Lottoland and Brookvale Park will continue to be open for public access.

Construction is being guided by a Council-approved Construction Management Plan. During construction, every effort will be made to minimise disruption to local traffic and on-street parking.
