First images of Christchurch's new $220m sports centre released


A new world class multi-sport facility to be built in Christchurch promises to bring thousands of people into the city centre.

Design images, released today, show a modern facility which will house an Olympic-sized swimming pool, the country's largest leisure pool, nine netball courts, and a high performance sports centre.

The government and Christchurch City Council are jointly funding the venture, which will cost more than $220 million to build.

Construction will begin next year at the centre which is set between Moorhouse Ave and St Asasph Street. Work is due for completion in early 2020.
