Football Clubs to Receive Sports Uniform Funding (17.04.2013)

Written on the 26 April 2013

Carnegie Cricket Club & Murrumbeena Junior Football Club can look forward to a share in more than $325,000 worth of Victorian Government funding towards rejuvenating their club colours courtesy of the Sporting Uniform Grants Program.


Member for Southern Metropolitan Region, Georgie Crozier MLC, said that the Carnegie Cricket Club & Murrumbeena Junior Football Club would be two of 337 clubs to receive grants up to $1000 as part of the latest funding from the latest round of the popular program.


“Most sporting competitions simply won’t allow you on the park without a proper uniform,” Ms Crozier, said.


“This grant not only provides a boost for those clubs that received a grant, but ensures more members of the community, whatever their skill level or background, get the chance to represent the club and join in the fun.


“More importantly, through the Program we’re removing a crucial barrier and increasing participation which is a key priority for the Victorian Government,” Ms Crozier said.


Minister for Sport and Recreation, Hugh Delahunty said the grants go a long way towards boosting team morale, connecting communities and can play an integral role in motivating more people to get more active more often.


“Team uniforms are more than just colours; they represent local sporting traditions and
community pride,” Mr Delahunty said.


“That is why we are proud to deliver the Sporting Uniform Grants Program,” he said.
