More than $95,000 will go towards new lighting at their Jack Grut Reserve venue in Mordialloc.
The project is one of the 25 across the state sharing in $5 million from the program.
With over 350,000 participants state-wide and millions of fans tuning in to the World Cup, soccer is more popular than ever, especially amongst women and girls.
The new 100 lux lighting will give the popular club the chance to schedule training and junior matches day and night with an extra 20 hours of use a week.
That’s great news for the growing number of players from the under 12’s to seniors on a waiting list to join in the fun.
The World Game Facilities Fund is helping local football clubs upgrade existing facilities or build new ones across Metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.
The funding is part of the Victorian Government’s strong commitment to sports and active recreation, and to encourage all Victorians to get out there and get active. Since 2014 the government has invested over $34 million in football facilities.
We’re investing almost half a billion dollars in our 2018/19 Budget to ensure sport and active recreation goes from strength to strength.
Project partners include the Kingston City Council and the club.
