On Saturday, 1st of August, Club President Tony Pearce and Michael Ferguson MHA officially opened the new Launceston United clubrooms. The opening is the culmination of a seven year journey of development applications with the Launceston City Council, grants applications with the Tasmanian Government’s Sports and Recreation Department, Football Federation Australia (FFA) and many club fundraising events.

In his welcoming address, Tony outlined the journey the club had travelled from the 2007 Committee, that having completed the club’s 50th Anniversary celebrations that year, the Committee concluded that to fulfil the next 50 years of continuity, the club needed to replace the existing clubroom building that had been in service since 1965. In what was to become a step by step construction of the new building as funding became available in the following seven years, Tony expressed his gratitude for the support of special guests, Andrew Smith, Manager Parks and Recreation at the Launceston City Council, Michael Ferguson, (MHA) on behalf of the State Government’s Sport and Recreation Department, George Kalis, Competition Manager at Football Federation Tasmania. Tony also expressed his gratitude to club Treasurer, Ian Dickinson for his handling of all financial matters related to the building process and the fundraising efforts of the club Committee members, sponsors and supporters.
Michael Ferguson, MHA, is his official opening address, congratulated Tony and the club on being able to achieve the completion of the new building by working with all levels of Government. Michael commented that the building is a great asset for the Launceston area and it was his great pleasure to be club Patron of a hard working group of community minded people who achieve great things.

Michael and Tony jointly officially opened the building for the present and future generations of the Launceston United Soccer Club and the community of Launceston.
