SKY PARK – SYDNEY FC
In September 2023, Sydney FC proudly unveiled its remarkable $30 million football and community precinct, Sky Park. This state-of-the-art Centre of Excellence is poised to redefine the club’s identity, serving as a central hub for professional football teams, the youth Academy, dedicated coaching staff, and essential administrative personnel. The inauguration of Sky Park also marked a historic moment for women’s football in Australia, introducing dedicated facilities to nurture the most promising young female footballers, thus paving the way for Sydney FC’s A-League Women’s squad.
The collaboration between Sydney FC and Macquarie University was instrumental in the success of Sky Park. This partnership was founded on a shared commitment to fostering community engagement, education, and grassroots football. Sydney FC Chairman Scott Barlow was actively involved in the project and spoke with excitement at the opening, “Sky Park is finally here. It is a world-class facility that we have been working on for many years. It brings together our entire club under one roof for the first time. We now have a home, in Sky Park, to be very proud of.”
TCW’s comprehensive furniture procurement for Sky Park Sydney FC included a diverse range of carefully selected elements, meticulously chosen to enhance both functionality and aesthetics. From the ergonomic To-Sync task chairs by Dauphin to the versatile Noom 50 breakout chairs with removable writing tables by Actiu and stackable Noom 50 chairs, equipped with trolleys for mobility, every piece contributes to this dynamic facility. The Noom 30 upholstered chairs by Actiu, Little Perillo chairs by Zuco, and Noom 40 stools by Actiu add elegance and comfort to various areas, while the contemporary Rhythm Chair offers flexibility.
The facility includes inviting lounge spaces featuring Allora lounges by Dauphin and Talk lounges by Jonas Ihreborn. Office suites are equipped with Wing Meeting Tables and desks from the TCW Collection. Flexible workstations integrate Mox Pro workstations by Markant, complete with cable management for a clutter-free environment. Athena power rails provide easy access to power sources, and Marco folding tables by Elevar enhance adaptability. This comprehensive furniture selection reflects a commitment to creating a highly functional and visually appealing workspace.
Sky Park’s architectural design is a testament to its aspiration of seamlessly blending world-class football and community engagement. The design fosters interaction and connectivity within the facility and with the external environment.
Sky Park extends its reach far beyond professional football, warmly welcoming community engagement programs, fan days, university education initiatives, and grassroots football training. An outdoor futsal court, adaptable for various uses such as education space, marketplace, or community BBQ area, stands as a testament to the facility’s dedication to fostering lasting community connections.
