Stop neglect of community sports stadium: replace dodgy skylight

This petition had 555 supporters

It happens frequently in winter.

First thing on a Saturday morning, kids get ready for their morning match of basketball, leave the house early with their families, brace the cold, then arrive at the stadium only to be told the match is cancelled.

The water leaking from the stadium’s ceiling makes playing unsafe.

During the winter months, once the sun hits the frost on the Coburg Sports Stadium’s non-water proof skylight, the water inevitably leaks through, dripping onto the stadium floor.

This is only one example of the consequence of no maintenance or upkeep of the Stadium by its owners, SSV, Sports Stadium Victoria.   

Their neglect of the Stadium directly results in kids being turned away from sports games.  

Sign this petition demanding SSV replace the existing skylight.

Every single person who enters the stadium – either player or spectator – pays an entry fee of $3. Every week this money gets collected and placed in the coffers of SSV but none of it returns to the upkeep, maintenance or improvement of the Stadium.

Some more facts:

- The stadium is not up to date

- The skylight on the rooftop is full of mould, dirt and not water proof.

- The stadium needs to be lit up using interior lights as the skylight is filthy.

- The stadium is unable to cater for a large number of people (limited seating for spectators) 

- The stadium has no heating
