George Municipality Sports Section’s new offices at Outeniqua Park Stadium

The George Municipality Sports Section’s are now occupying office space at the Outeniqua Stadium, and the public are welcome to visit these offices at Augusta Drive, (opposite the George bowling club).

All Covid-19 protocols are in place. According to Granville Campher, Manager: Sport Development, the move from their original rented premises to the Outeniqua Stadium which belongs to the George Municipality, made perfect sense as not only can the office space be used optimally but the sports officials are hands-on now to ensure that operations at the A-grade stadium are managed correctly.

The public can phone, email, or visit the Sports Development office on appointment by contacting  Gerald de Villiers on 044 801 2809 or 044 801 2812. Email the officials on gdevilliers@george.gov.za or lybotha@george.gov.za for the use and application forms for all municipal sports facilities and other sports queries.

Campher noted that the hard lockdown in 2020 coupled with sports activities being halted had affected the maintenance of the stadium.  “Outeniqua stadium is strategically and centrally situated for Sports tourism and the quality of the stadium is world-class. It is important that this stadium and the others in George portray the vision and image of top-class facilities and the sports office will make sure this is being done.” Campher said. The process of a long-term rental agreement is still underway.
