Adelaide Olympic Football Club have confirmed they are now the tenants of the newly named APEX Football Stadium, formerly known as VALO Football Centre.
The tenancy comes after Football South Australia officially handed the Club keys to the venue located in Angle Park.
The venue, which has the second full-size synthetic pitch in SA, opened its doors in 2015 and has previously hosted Australia Cup matches, Women’s NPLSA, RAA NPLSA and community events.
The CEO of Football SA, Michael Carter, said he was “so pleased for Adelaide Olympic to be getting a quality home of their own.”
Adelaide Olympic President, Stavros Parissos, said he “couldn’t be prouder” of the new tenancy.
“From 23 junior players, no uniforms and serving drinks from a trestle table at a foreign ground 10 years ago to being a leading club with successful MiniRoos, Juniors and Senior teams including back to back Cup champions and now consolidation of all our operation at APEX Football Stadium, I couldn’t be prouder,” Mr Parissos said.
Mr Parissos added the permanent tenancy wouldn’t have been possible without the support of volunteers, the SA Labor government, Tom Koutsantonis MP, the Office of Recreation and Sport & Football South Australia.
A process has been started to change the venue name on Google Maps and on all livestream broadcasts.
