Photo gallery: East Coast Bays facilities upgrade underway for FIFA Women’s World Cup

Work is underway to upgrade East Coast Bays’ grounds, where the world champion United States team will be based for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The club has shared photographs of the progress at Bay City Park, Browns Bay, where work is already underway for the lower field area and to upgrade floodlighting.

“The lower level changing rooms, showers and toilets are now under construction so we ask members not to enter these areas until further notice,” the club says.

The improvements mean that the lower-level changing rooms and showers will not be available when senior summer football restarts in January.

Bay City Park is one of a number of clubs throughout New Zealand to benefit from a $19 million programme to upgrade facilities ahead of the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
