A host of the Northern Tablelands tired and worn sporting facilities have the opportunity to earn a revamp with a $100 million funding injection for regional NSW.
The NSW Government’s Regional Sports Infrastructure Fund will allow areas outside of Sydney to apply for a portion of the funding to improve local tracks, fields and pitches.
Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall encouraged communities within the region to apply to help develop more professional sporting facilities.
“Sport forms a core part of the identity of our regional communities – it helps to build town pride, improve fitness, and drive local economies,” he said.
“This $100 million fund will build new facilities, create sporting hubs, boost participation and help upgrade existing sporting infrastructure – providing a helping hand for local economies in the process.
“The funding will also work to improve the experience for those on the sidelines – which will help draw more professional and amateur events visitors to our regional centres.
“With many of the nation’s top sportspeople coming from regional NSW, this funding will help foster their development, build communities and put the spotlight back on our sporting successes.”
Applications are now open and more information can be found at www.nsw.gov.au/
