Deputy Prime Minister Bill English and Mayor Celia Wade-Brown will open the pitch this Thursday.

Games have been played on the pitch for the past few weeks to bed it down before the season really gets going.

This is the sixth such sportsfield in the region with the City Council paying $800,000 (half the total cost) and the college paying the rest.

As well as being used for college football and rugby, the new turf will also be available for other sports.
