Asian Cup 2015 Legacy Fund injects $4 million into NSW Football

Asian Cup 2015 Legacy Fund injects $4 million into NSW Football
August 15, 2016

The NSW Government has launched a new $4 million fund to deliver better community facilities for local football clubs across NSW driven from the success of the 2015 Asian Cup Tournament.

Announced during Football NSW’s Skill Acquisition Program Gala Day at Valentine Sports Park yesterday (14th August), NSW Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres said the overwhelming success of the Asian Cup resulted in a surplus to improve facilities at a local level in NSW’s highest participated sport.

Minister Ayres stated “1,000 affiliated football clubs across NSW now able to apply for funding for much needed club improvements.

“The booming popularity of football is already bringing communities together, and now players across the state will directly benefit from the success of the 2015 Asian Cup.

“This is more than a regional investment program, it joins the dots between major sporting event success and the NSW Government delivering sporting infrastructure which meets the needs of local clubs.”

Minister Ayres joined Football NSW Chief Executive Eddie Moore and Northern NSW Football Chief Executive David Eland to launch the fund at NSW Football Headquarters at Valentine Sports Park.

Welcoming the funding, Moore stated “the decision to allocate profits from the competition to community football will no doubt improve the overall football experience for the 765,000 football participants in NSW.

“The availability of these grants will have a massive impact on football clubs, associations and zones across the state, from Albury to Tweed Heads.”

Eland encouraged clubs to study the guidelines and apply for grants which will have positive outcomes for local communities, adding “players, referees, coaches and administrators of all ages and abilities are set to benefit from the fund which will magnify the social, health, educational and cultural benefits our game brings to society.”

In April the NSW Government annoucned a $40 million allocation for the NRL Centres of Excellence fund, under which NSW NRL clubs will be able to refresh their local facilities on a dollar-for-dollar basis.

Guidelines for the NSW Asian Cup 2015 Legacy Fund are now available with applications open from early next month to 24th February 2017.
