GEORGE NEWS - The George Municipality sports sections have moved their office space to the Outeniqua Stadium, and the public is welcome to visit these offices at Augusta Drive, opposite the George bowling club.
All Covid-19 protocols are in place.
Manager of Sport Development Granville Campher said the move from their original rented premises to the Outeniqua Stadium, which belongs to the municipality, made perfect sense as not only can the office space be used optimally but the sport officials are hands-on now to ensure that operations at the A-grade stadium are managed correctly.
Campher said the hard lockdown in 2020 coupled with sport activities being halted had affected the maintenance of the stadium.
"Outeniqua Stadium is strategically and centrally situated for sport tourism and the quality of the stadium is world class. It is important that this stadium and the others in George portray the vision and image of top-class facilities and the sports office will make sure this is being done."
The process of a long-term rental agreement is still underway.
