Newcastle Knights Centre of Excellence Opened

We were delighted to see the official opening of Newcastle Knights’ new $20 million Centre of Excellence in March.

The Centre provides an integrated world-class high-performance training, administration and community facility for the identification, development and fostering of rugby league talent in the Hunter.

It includes three full-sized training fields, a state-of-the-art gym, multipurpose community and function area, theatrette and players’ lounge, rehabilitation space and office areas, and precinct walking and cycle path.

Scope of work included design & construction of a new purpose-built training facility and administration hub, including:

  • Gym & Pools (heated, ice, recovery)
  • Player locker rooms
  • Amenities
  • Office spaces
  • Physiotherapy rooms
  • Doctors consult rooms
  • High performance training offices
  • Commercial kitchen
  • Front-of-house facilities




Delivering this project has created 80 local jobs, providing a major boost to the Hunter construction industry. This is a prime example of how we are building future-focused social infrastructure that sets our communities up for generations to come.

“Rugby League is such a big part of the social fabric of regional communities and investing in projects like this will benefit the game for generations to come.”

Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole

Akin to Minister for Regional NSW, Paul Toole’s commentary, we know that sports like Rugby League is a significant part of the social fabric of regional communities.
