The Cobram Soccer Pavilion has been targeted in a brazen act of vandalism, which has caused thousands of dollars damage and potentially delayed the opening of the facility.

Mayor Libro Mustica said he was extremely disappointed a fantastic project for the community had been deliberately damaged.

“This senseless act, occurring earlier this week which caused more than $20,000 worth of damage, only harms the community in which we live,” Cr Mustica said.

“With 260 registered soccer players on AWFA match days, 290 Cobram Junior Soccer Association registered players and 80 plus volunteers there has been increasing demand for more space and better facilities.

“The development of this sporting facility was to benefit the wellbeing, not only of the soccer fraternity, but also many other sports played at the precinct, including basketball, netball and cricket.

“And now, due to the necessary and extensive repairs needed, this facility will see a delayed opening and thereby impact on already planned activities of these sporting clubs.”

Cr Mustica urged anyone with information to phone Cobram CIU on (03) 5871 2866 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
