Football NSW is pleased to announce the Let’s Light Up Football Campaign is now open. Football clubs are now invited to apply for funding towards lighting upgrades at their local field.
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.
“We are excited to once again inject funding into the local football community across NSW” stated Football NSW Chief Executive, Stuart Hodge.
“The recent state-wide facilities audit highlighted that 32% of the fields in NSW don’t have floodlighting and 42% of fields with lighting are below the minimum Australian Standards of 50 lux. This campaign aims to address this issue by providing participants with a safe and welcoming environment”.
The fund will provide up to 20% of a floodlighting project with a maximum of $20,000 available per project. The project will also need confirmed approval from the relevant local government authority as part of the eligibility criteria.
Once again $300,000 worth of funding will be made available to 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.
