Building the Blues

Since 1901 Sturt Football Club has called Unley Oval home. During this time the Club has continued to evolve, develop and grow. Our facilities must compliment this progression.

In conjunction with The City of Unley, State Government, AFL and our supporters we have now completed Stage I of the Building the Blues project.

The Building the Blues project is the most significant project undertaken in the Club’s history. It come about after exhaustive research, consultation and due diligence.

Stage I provides state-of-the-art change room facilities that meets the demands of our elite pathway programs including women’s football.

Stage II will deliver a community hub, multi-use, function facility atop The Jack Oatey Grandstand that will allow our increasing number of supporters to feel part of the Club and create a destination accessible to the whole community.

Stage 1
• New unisex change rooms & public amenities located beneath The Jack Oatey Grandstand

• Upgraded unisex change rooms located beneath The Harry J. McKay Grandstand

• New canteen facilities located next to The Harry J. McKay Grandstand

• Disabled access to Unley Oval grandstand terraces

Stage 2
• Community Hub / Multi-purpose Function Room

The City of Unley have pledged their financial support to Stage II and together we are working on securing funding through the government and other sources including our supporter base.

The Building the Blues project has been developed in partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF).
