Coburg City Oval is a popular destination for sport and leisure in Moreland, and we're working to make it even better.

Over the next two years we'll transform the Coburg City Oval into a multi-purpose sporting pavilion to provide a broader variety of sporting and social offerings.

The existing historically significant pavilion building will be upgraded to improve safety and accessibility. Features include:

  • New improved entrance and foyer to the pavilion including lift access to the upper levels;
  • Redevelopment of sporting facilities on the ground floor to meet football and cricket sporting facilities requirements;
  • Female friendly umpires and players change rooms;
  • Improvements to Level 1 pavilion amenities in line with disability access and mobility standards;
  • Introduction of new family friendly public amenities including baby change facilities;
  • New social space on Level 2 of the pavilion including a kitchenette;
  • Reconfiguration of the Grandstand.
