COFFS HARBOUR TO HOST EASTERN UNIVERSITY GAMES
COFFS Harbour will once again stage one of Australian University Sport's (AUS) premier events when it hosts the 2003 Eastern University Games from 6 – 10 July next year. The announcement that Coffs Harbour will be the host city for the five day university sporting carnival comes after a sponsorship agreement between AUS, the peak governing body of university sport in Australia, and the Coffs Harbour City Council was signed today.
The Coffs Harbour City Council has agreed to become a major sponsor of the event, which, based on previous year’s Games, will see at least $1.5 million directly injected into the city's economy over the week of the Games.
Accommodation providers alone are expected to reap in excess of $500,000 over the five days, while other areas that will benefit include transport services, food and beverage sales, retail sales and tourist attractions. The Games are also expected to generate far greater long-term economic benefits for region.
