Illawarra Stingrays can finally practice in more than just "candlestick" conditions after the club unveiled new training lights at the J J Kelly Park complex.
The development brings to an end a wait of more than two years, which kept the club in dull conditions on a regular basis.
Club president Mick Woods was ecstatic with the addition.
"It allows a wider berth of training," Woods said.
"It opens up the whole ground, where before it only opened up a half to three quarters of the ground.
"The juniors can now use a much bigger area.
"Noreen Hay - her support with the then state Labor government helped sign it all off and she did an extremely good job."
As one of the fastest growing areas in Illawarra sport, women's football was in need of suitable training facilities to match its growing profile.
Woods believes this contribution to facilities is a timely one, as the Stingrays remain in contention for the Women's NSW Premier League title.
"Especially with the situation in the Premier League being so close and tight, you need to take full advantage of what you have got," Woods said.
"Now that we have got a decent set of lights we can try and get the ground improved to that little bit better level as a playing surface."
The Rays currently sit first in the Club Championship by three points with just one round remaining in the regular season.
"It is an amazing job for these guys and coaches, you have to give a huge amount of credit."
