Today’s funding pledge from Queensland Premier Campbell Newman on the proposed new sports and entertainment precinct in Townsville represents a huge step forward for plans for a new home ground for the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys, CEO Peter Jourdain said today.
“This is great news for our club and gives us tremendous hope that this project will be completed in the not-too-distant future,” Mr Jourdain said.
“It’s especially gratifying that we now have bipartisan support for the proposed stadium, which is part of wider urban renewal plans for inner-city Townsville.
“There’s no doubt that turning these ideas into reality is very important for the future of the Cowboys, the city and North Queensland as a whole as the Premier outlined this morning.
“We look forward to continuing to work closely with the various stakeholders in the proposal and highlighting the value this new precinct will bring.”
