New 3G pitch will be a Game Changer for Mossley Park

Mossley Park will see the installation of a brand new floodlit 3G pitch as well as an upgrade of changing facilities as part of a proposed £1.6m scheme recently approved by the Council.

Mossley Park will see the installation of a brand new floodlit 3G pitch as well as an upgrade of changing facilities as part of a proposed £1.6m scheme recently approved by the Council.

It is hoped that the scheme can be progressed with match funding from a £5.59M fund earmarked for Northern Ireland through The Multi -Sport Grassroots Facilities Investment Fund, which is funded through the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sports (DCMS) and managed by the IFA.

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey Alderman Stephen Ross recently visited the Park where he met up with club officials and players from Mossley Football Club who currently use the facility as their home pitch. He said;

“This major investment at Mossley Park is a complete game changer. I welcome the new 3G facilities with floodlights which will allow increased match and training capacity, provide an all-weather surface, and ultimately benefit the local clubs, schools, and community groups.”

The Council is also funding 3G pitches at Monkstown, Rathcoole, and Ballyclare as part of a significant investment in sport and leisure facilities across the Borough.
