GRASSROOTS football clubs are invited to apply for grants under the second round of Asian Cup Legacy Funding.

Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres said the $4.1 million fund will help deliver better community facilities to local football clubs across NSW.

“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 - $150,000 per project,” Mr Ayres said.

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

The $4.1 million Legacy Fund is an 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. More than 1000 affiliated football clubs are now eligible for more than $2.3 million in funding for round two.
