Ground Redevelopment Plans 

Floreat Athena Soccer Club will continue its progress in 1998 by re-developing its Home Ground The Lake Monger Velodrome. The Board as well as the Ground redevelopment Committee feel that by re-developing the ground, our club will be the leading club in the 21st Century both on the field and off it, with the much improved facilities.

The construction work in 1998 may affect the team as the first 13 games or all first round fixtures will be played at home with the 2nd round of matches too be played away to enable construction to start somewhere around June/July.
The work will consist of the removal of the existing cycling track and old stands to enable a bigger pitch to occupy the ground.  The entrance tunnel will be re-directed towards the clubrooms and new seating will take the seating capacity to 1600 seats with the option of adding and re-erecting the existing wooden stands (new timber) to add a further 2000 seats

Once completed the pitch will measure 100m in length x 70m in width with 3m between the pitch and the fence with 6m behind the goals. Also underpitch reticulation and new drainage system will be provided for as well as stronger floodlights.

The new stadium will be the best permanent built soccer facility in Western Australia

The construction is planned to finish by November 1998.

The plans can be currently be viewed in the Floreat Athena Clubrooms.
