At the NRL footy some will be cool some will be?


Airport support means league fans won’t get hot under the collar Regardless of how their team of choice is faring on the field, there will be no reason for those in the corporate box to lose their cool when Gladstone hosts its first official NRL match on Sunday (Apr 8). Those lucky enough to have scored a corporate box seat for the clash between Gold Coast Titans and ManlyWarringah Sea Eagles at Marley Brown Oval will enjoy a level of airconditioned comfort never experienced at the ground before thanks to the Gladstone Airport Corporation . GAC has sponsored the installation of new aiconditioners for all 10 corporate boxes in the Marley Brown Oval grandstand, an improvement that will help the venue and the Gladstone Region to attract future major events. Gladstone Airport Corporation Chief Executive Officer Peter Friel said “The Gladstone Airport Corporation is delighted to provide the funding for the upgrades to the airconditioning infrastructure at Marley Brown Oval. “The funding shows an ongoing commitment by the airport board to give back to the community in ways that will help secure future events at the oval, subsequently providing economic stimulus for the area and building social capital within this great region that we call home.” Gladstone Region Councillor Rick Hansen said the GAC’s support for the Titans-Sea Eagles encounter signalled its confidence in the region’s continued development. “The provision of new airconditioners for the corporate boxes, along with other improvements made to the field and facilities, have opened the way for Marley Brown Oval to attract more major events and enhances the facilities for local sporting teams and their supporters,” Cr Hansen said. “Marley Brown Oval has hosted a number of large sporting and entertainment events in the past and the prospect of attracting more big events is boosted by improvements made to the facility. “Council thanks the Gladstone Airport Corporation for its generosity in supplying new airconditioners for the comfort of Marley Brown Oval patrons and for their show of faith in the future direction of the Gladstone Region.”Cheers MjB
