Three Kings United Football Club is excited to announce that after many years of fundraising, their new clubhouse dream is about to become a reality. Thanks to a generous top-up contribution from Auckland Council’s new Sport and Recreation Fund, the football club is able to make a start on its new facilities at Keith Hay Park in Mount Roskill.
Murray Holdaway, Three Kings United President, says the project has taken many years to come to fruition. “Over the past seven years we have had many challenges with this project. It’s amazing to now be at a point where we can make a start on the building that will not only deliver a new ‘home’ for Three Kings United but a fantastic asset for the Eden-Roskill-Albert communities”
While there still remains a small shortfall in funding, the club executive team is confident it can start the build with the knowledge that this shortfall can be met.
The current clubhouse is more than 50 years-old, and no longer meets the needs of the club’s current, thriving, membership. Furthermore, it needs to increase its capacity to take account of the expanding population of central Auckland suburbs, such as Mount Eden, and Mount Roskill, so they too have access to outdoor recreational facilities, including football.
“The new clubhouse has been designed in conjunction with Auckland Council’s Keith Hay Park management plan. It will not only be a base for our players and their families, it will also be a much-needed community hub for the central Auckland area,” says Holdaway.
Three Kings United Football Club would like to thank all their past and current members, who have donated money privately, and also fundraised for the club. We would also like to thank Auckland Council, Foundation North, Lotteries, NZCT, Four Winds Foundation, and Milestone Foundation for their generous funding.
