Perth Glory Football Club is one step closer to building its training and administration headquarters at a redeveloped section of Percy Doyle Reserve in Duncraig
The City of Joondalup Council last night endorsed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the club to develop a path for Perth Glory FC to be based in Perth’s northern suburbs.
Discussions have been held in recent weeks between the City and Perth Glory FC to explore a portion of the Percy Doyle Reserve site to host a Glory High Performance centre.
Council endorsed an MoU which outlined roles and responsibilities to bring the project to fruition.
"The signing of the MoU is a significant milestone for the City and for Perth Glory,” Joondalup Mayor Troy Pickard said.
“A Glory High Performance centre incorporating training and administration facilities would be a major coup for the City.
“We look forward to working with the football club to meet agreed objectives for both parties identified in the MoU.”
Perth Glory FC, currently top of the table in the Hyundai A-League, National Youth League and Westfield W-League, does not have a single headquarters.
Its men’s, women’s and youth teams all train and play at various locations across the Perth metropolitan area.
Perth Glory Chief Executive Jason Brewer said this was a major step in the right direction for the growth of Football in WA.
“We are thankful to the people and council from the City of Joondalup for embracing our vision to promote and help grow the game in a corridor of Perth’s northern suburbs which already has a huge following for the world game” he said
Both parties will carry out more detailed discussions in the new year, including access for Glory teams to Percy Doyle Reserve for training and development purposes.
