Soccer fans get excited - the home of Camden's first synthetic football field has been chosen.

Narellan's Nott Oval was announced the field's new location at last night's Camden Council meeting.

The synthetic football field will become the latest state-of-the-art sports facility in the area.

Nott Oval was chosen ahead of four other locations including Camden South's Ron Dine Reserve, Mount Annan's Birriwa Reserve, Doohan Reserve in Oran Park and Leppington Oval in Leppington

Camden mayor Theresa Fedeli said it was exciting to finalise the location for the area's first synthetic football field.

"Nott Oval is the ideal location for the synthetic football field due to its central location to the area, public transport access and parking capacity," Cr Fedeli said.

"Council is committed to providing our residents with the highest quality sport and recreation facilities and this will be another fantastic facility to be enjoyed by both a range of local football clubs and the wider community.

"With a growing demand for football in our area and our new A-League club Macarthur FC kicking off in 2020-21 this is a very exciting project for the future of sport in Camden.

"I would like to thank both the federal and state governments for their funding of $2.8 million to go towards this facility as part of the Western Parkland Liveability Fund."

A detailed design of the facility and tender for construction will be undertaken with the conversion from turf to synthetic surface expected to be completed by late 2020.
