SPORTING and community clubs in Charleville should be buoyed by the news that another venue is available for night-time activities.
The playing field at the back of Graham Andrews Park now has flood lights installed for the benefit of sporting and community organisations around Charleville.
The field will host Thursday night soccer in the next couple of weeks and any other sports that are keen to make use of the ground.
The lights cost about $100,000 and were funded by a grant from the Department of State Development Infrastructure and Planning and the Murweh Shire Council.
Murweh Shire Mayor Denis Cook said it's a great success story for sport in Charleville.
"We have a very large field here at Graham Andrews Park and we are happy that the lights are finally going up," he said.
"It gives us another recreation ground for soccer and other sports."
Charleville Soccer co-ordinator John Nicholson said it is a defining moment for soccer in Charleville.
"It is great because it takes a lot of pressure off the showgrounds," he said.
"The only thing that has stopped another ground opening is lighting."
Mr Nicholson said with the heat of summer more people are participating in night sport.
"The ground will now come into immediate operation when we change the soccer from the showgrounds to here at the end of the month," he said.
"Soccer in Charleville has been great for multiculturalism, with people from Vietnam, South Africa, South Korea, Hong Kong and other countries all participating in our Thursday night games."
