Football NSW is pleased to announce the Let’s Light Up Football Campaign is now open. Football clubs are now invited to apply for support under the first ever Football NSW Facilities Fund.
Let’s Light Up Football allows Football NSW affiliated clubs and associations, together with local councils and schools, the ability to apply for funding to improve lighting on community football pitches.
Football NSW recognises that floodlight’s play a pivotal role in the running of a football club – put simply without lighting a football club cannot provide a safe and inviting experience for players.
Football NSW Chief Executive, Stuart Hodge, said, “There are far too many football pitches across NSW that simply don’t meet the Australian Lighting Standards for training and or competition”.
“I encourage football clubs that have suffered from poor or no lighting to apply now. Let’s Light Up Football offers a maximum of $20,000 per lighting project to assist in improving the football experience for players across regional and metropolitan NSW”, Mr Hodge continued.
The Let’s Light Up Football fund of $300,000 will provide Member Associations and Clubs with the opportunity to upgrade lighting to a safe and suitable standard for the community and most importantly increase the capacity of open space through the provision of night training and games, throughout NSW.
Applications close, Wednesday 6 June 2018 at 4.00pm. The Guidelines and Online Application Form for the Let’s Light Up Football fund can be found at HERE.
