THE Victorian Government is helping local soccer clubs improve their facilities and encourage more people to play the world game.
To ensure the game continues to grow at the grassroots level, the government has announced a $2.5 million world game facilities fund to help clubs upgrade or build new facilities across the state.
Member for Northern Victoria Mark Gepp said as much as $250,000 funding would be available to upgrade facilities.
The new fund will work to support local soccer clubs and organisations in northern Victoria to undertake projects such as lighting upgrades, pitch redevelopments, synthetic pitch developments and unisex accessible change rooms.
Applications are now open. For more information visit sport.vic.gov.au
