IT was play ball for the Logan City Rugby Union Club after their senior team was the first squad to christen their new playing field last Saturday.

Three new fields and a club house, which came at a cost of more than $4.5 million, has enabled the club to relocate from its former home at Homestead Park to Meakin Park at Slacks Creek.

The Logan City Council allocated more than $3 million to the project with an additional $1.5 million from the Queensland Government to help develop the new sports complex.

Mayor Pam Parker met with club officials to take a look around the new facilities last week.

Cr Parker said she was proud her council was able to help.

"I have been down and inspected the new grounds and clubhouse and they are truly top quality," Cr Parker said.

"I am extremely proud of what we as a council have been able to provide for our sporting community.

"The development includes the construction of two new playing fields, competition standard field lighting and a third field for training purposes.

"I have no doubt the junior and senior players, not only from Logan, but also those coming into the city will be impressed."

In addition to the new fields, a new club house boasting four change rooms, referee room, storage rooms, medical room, kitchen with canteen, cold room, toilets, multipurpose activity room and viewing deck were also constructed.

Logan Saints President Peter Tisdall said the new complex would allow the organisation to grow.

"We have more than 200 players , but at this new complex we will be able to expand," Mr Tisdall said.

"Our focus is to enter the states elite premier rugby competition and now that we have quality fields and a clubhouse we are certainly in the right direction towards achieving that."
