St Kilda Football Club has returned to its spiritual home at Moorabbin Reserve upon the completion of the first stage of the $30m redevelopment project at Linton Street. The redevelopment will provide the Saints a new base for a new era in its aspirations to return to finals glory, including high-level training and rehabilitation facilities. The Saint’s men’s team officially relocated to the new facilities, now named RSEA Park, as of Monday 19 March 2018 – and will be joined by an AFLW team in 2020. More fans and visitors will be able to attend open training sessions and VFL matches, also boosting to the local economy.
The second stage of the redevelopment will be completed later this year, delivering new community football facilities, including player and umpire change rooms, training areas, league administration offices and further carparking. RSEA Park will also become the new home for the Sandringham Dragons, and the headquarters of the Southern Football Netball League and South Metro Junior Football League and feature administrative facilities, a high-ball indoor training facility and gym, as well as more space to host local functions and events.
