North Queenslanders are invited to pave their name with the stars at the new North Queensland Stadium, with the announcement of the Cowboys Captains Walk today.
To be located in the Southern precinct of the new stadium, the Captains Walk will recognise Cowboys captains and also give the community the opportunity to have individual and organisation names paved to create a legacy for decades to come.
The Cowboys will recognise tax-deductible donations of $1,500 to the Cowboys Captains Walk project with an engraved paver at the new stadium.
Donations will assist in building the proposed multi-purpose Cowboys Community, Training & High Performance Centre, to be located in the new Townsville Stadium Precinct, with projected completion for late 2020.
Cowboys Chief Executive Officer Jeff Reibel described the initiative as one the whole community can be involved in.
“We’re very excited about the Captains Walk – it will be a distinctive feature of our new home and enables North Queenslanders to make their mark at this magnificent venue,” Mr Reibel said.
“It’s a great opportunity to recognise a special milestone or life event, and to even create a ‘family’ of pavers for family and friends.
“We’ll also be recognising our 11 captains who have led our great club with a dedicated paver for each, creating our very own walk of fame at our new home.
“We’re very grateful to Stadiums Queensland for giving us the opportunity to create this installation and allowing the community to build a very personal connection with the stadium.”
Pavers will be engraved with the Cowboys logo and feature custom engraving of up to three lines (maximum 16 characters per line).
Paver donations are open now until 14 November, for installation in February 2020.
