New Seating and Signage at Royal Athletic Park

The City of Victoria will receive $94,000 from Western Economic Diversification's Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund for energy efficiency upgrades and customer service improvements at Royal Athletic Park. The City will match this funding for a total project budget of $188,000. The improvements are designed to extend the stadium's life span, increase energy efficiency, improve public and staff safety, and  the customers' experience at the facility.

The Federal government funding will help pay for seat backs to be installed on approximately 1,300 bench seats at Royal Athletic Park to improve the comfort of sports fans and event goers. The seat backs are expected to be installed by the end of March in time for the 2014 season.  The funding will also contribute to the new LED lighting that has been installed in the two covered grandstands, new windows and a new sign/message board.
