Brighton Sports Pavilion Wins National AFL Award

The Brighton Regional Sports Pavilion.

The Brighton Regional Sports Pavilion was recently announced as the State and Territory winner for Tasmania as part of the AFL’s annual Ken Gannon Community Football Facilities Awards. The Ken Gannon Awards recognise best practice in community football facility development across Australia, as well as the people, clubs and stakeholders driving the best projects.

The Brighton Regional Sports Pavilion was a $6,480,000 investment jointly funded project between the Department of Infrastructure (Community Development) and Brighton Council and was opened in June 2021. The new, two-storey building includes a gym, club rooms, meeting rooms, male and female change rooms, function space, dining areas and commercial kitchen.

The facility supports the growth of female participation in sport and the growth of the Brighton community. It will also help ensure the community has the opportunity to participate in and enjoy healthy sport and recreation, as well as valuable amenities to the broader community. The awards are funded by the
AFL’s Australian Football Facilities Fund which partners on $50M worth of community football facility projects benefitting more than 100 clubs each and every year.
