Marty Busch Reserve in Sebastopol, a suburb of Ballarat, has been transformed from a surface that was maligned for its inability to handle the areas wet winters.
Check out this amazing record of the transformation of the Marty Busch Reserve in a $1.6 million project funded by the City of Ballarat with the work carried out by Pitchcraft - Richard Winter and Mat Woolfe.
The oval will be officially opened this Saturday night under lights.
A drawcard for the match is the inclusion of Melton South Co-coach Brendan Fevola for the visitors.
