The Sunshine Coast is Olympic Underway…


The Sunshine Coast has commenced its Olympics 2032 journey with works underway at the Sunshine Coast Stadium in Kawana.

Originally, survey company ‘Skyline’ (now merged with Bennett + Bennett) conducted a large scan of the Stadium for the purpose of a Stadium upgrade, well before the Olympics was locked in.

Now that the Sunshine Coast Stadium has a role in the Olympics through Football (Soccer) and Indoor basketball, the State Government has requested an expansion of our original survey and laser scanning on the site to cover a larger works program, as part of the design stage.

The construction works are planned for a 2024 start and a 2027 completion.

For the Olympic Games, the new works will allow a seating capacity of 20,000 for the Football preliminaries by creating 11,814 grandstand seats, plus there is capacity for a further 4,000 to sit on the hills at either end of the ground and a further 4,000 seats on temporary grandstands.

A new indoor Sports Centre with 11 courts and a 6,000 seat show court will also be delivered for the Basketball preliminaries.

The legacy will be fantastic facilities for the growing basketball participants, as well as a great stadium for the local Sunshine Coast Falcons Footy team and others.

‘As a local and one invested in the region, I get doubly excited knowing I am now playing a part in the set up for the Olympic Games of 2032 and as a local Sunshine Coaster…, it’s great to see our sporting facilities being upgraded to an international level. What a fantastic legacy for our young sports enthusiasts.'
