    Claremont Football Club has partnered with the State Government to build a state-of-the-art stadium, which is focal point of Landcorp’s “Claremont on the Park” precinct.

    The development provides an opportunity for the area to become a focus for the western suburbs community, where people meet, eat, watch entertainment, bring their families and play.

    The vision for the stadium and surrounds is that it will be a place with a strong sense of community identity and energy. It could involve buskers’ festivals, a people's art market or student music concerts – it will be a community centre or hub.

    The benefits of this type of electronic scoreboard include a central control from the pavilion and an electronic roller-shutter that closes automatically when not in use to protect the scoreboard from the impacts of weather and acts of vandalism. The community will also be able to advertise its events and important announcements.

    The City is proposing to commence the site preparation and the installation during October, with the commissioning of the scoreboard to be completed by the first week of November.
