A $67 million sporting development in Greater Springfield, an urban growth corridor located south west of Brisbane’s metropolitan area, is on track to open this year.

The developer of Greater Springfield says it is “cementing itself as one of Australia’s super sporting meccas” with its new Springfield Central Sports Complex slated to open to the public mid-year.

The new sporting facility, which neighbours Springfield Central State High School and St Peter’s Lutheran College, also joins the recent announcement of the $70 million Brisbane Lions AFLW stadium announced in January.

Springfield’s current population sits around 41,000 with this figure predicted to triple in size by 2030.

Rewind to 1992, when Greater Springfield founder Maha Sinnathamby purchased the 7000-acre parcel of land — today’s Springfield — which no developer wanted to touch.

Sinnanthamby says the region has a growing student population.

“There are currently 11,000 students in Greater Springfield, with that number expected to grow by 1200 each year moving forward,” the Springfield Land Corporation chairman said.

The developer says Greater Springfield is Australia’s first masterplanned greenfield city since Canberra, and to date it has seen $15 billion worth of infrastructure invested.

“We have a supersized CBD and an employment target of one job for every three residents,” Sinnathamby said.

The new sporting development will feature four ovals, 16 netball courts, eight fields, eight tennis courts, an athletics track as well as clubhouses and playgrounds.
