FUNDING AVAILABLE FOR NORTHERN TABLELANDS’ FOOTBALL CLUBS

Thursday, 23 November 2017

FOOTBALL clubs across the region are being encouraged to apply for the second round of NSW Asian Cup Legacy funding, which is now open, to improve local sporting facilities.

Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall said the $4.1 million fund would help deliver better community facilities to grassroots football clubs across the Northern Tablelands.

“I encourage local football clubs to apply for up to 50 per cent of the cost of building amenities or upgrading facilities, with a funding contribution of $50,000 to $150,000 per project,” Mr Marshall said.

“I know that improving local sports infrastructure helps build stronger communities and improves participation among children and adults alike.”

The $4.1 NSW Asian Cup Legacy Fund is a joint initiative of the NSW Government, Football NSW and Northern NSW Football. Sixteen clubs successfully applied for $1.8 million in grants during the first round of 2016/17 applications.

More than 1,000 affiliated football clubs across the State are now eligible for more than $2.3 million in funding for round two 2017/18 applications.

Mr Marshall said that football clubs in the region should consider improvements to facilities that benefit the whole community.

“Football is a popular sport across the Northern Tablelands and an important thread in uniting our community together and the funding provides an excellent opportunity for local clubs to draw in new members,” he said.

“I encourage all local clubs to apply for funding for a wide range of projects, including upgrades or developments to existing pitches, amenities and facilities, including seating, canteens, lighting, fencing, change rooms, storage spaces, drainage and pitches.”

Applications are now open and close 2 March 2018. For information and to apply, visit www.sport.nsw.gov.au/clubs/grants
