Bulldogs receive support for $50m ‘Centre of Excellence’ in Belmore

·

A community campaigner has described a multimillion-dollar concept for the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs‘ hybrid training and administration complex as a “game changer” for the future of rugby league in southwest Sydney.

The $50 million ‘Centre of Excellence’ project would revamp the Bulldogs’ home base at Belmore Oval Sports Complex, located at 3B Edison Lane in Belmore.

At last week’s council meeting, Canterbury-Bankstown councillors unanimously supported the proposal and agreed in principle to a new long-term leasing agreement with the Bulldogs.

According to The Daily Telegraph, planners declare that there is “mutual benefit” in council approving the site as the club could create new junior rugby league teams in a “bespoke” sporting centre.

“The club estimates that developing the Centre for Excellence will potentially increase those participating in these programs by 5,000 people across the local community,” planners state.

A Bulldogs representative stated that the team plans to begin works on the project in 2025.
