Mystery surrounds any future involvement of the Central Coast Mariners Football Club in the running of Gosford’s Central Coast Stadium.
The Central Coast Mariners have said that all questions about proposals relating to the stadium should be directed to Council. In a media statement, Central Coast Council said: “Council continues to be bewildered by rumours that a proposal has been presented to Council from the Mariners with regards to the potential purchase of Central Coast Stadium.
“As late as last Friday (November 25), Council met with the Central Coast Mariners around their future vision for their development at Tuggerah, and again at no time during those discussions did the Mainers put forward any proposal,” the statement said. Despite Council’s denials, Coast Community News understands that discussions have taken place between Mariners’ senior management and Council about making improvements to stadium infrastructure based on a long-term management agreement.
