Let’s Light Up Football Guidelines Application Form Preview

Lighting is a major priority for most clubs in Metropolitan and Regional NSW. Simply put, flood lit football pitches increase the number of hours for training sessions and games, at the same time as improving the environment for high quality skill development and competition matches.

The primary purpose of the Let’s Light Up Football campaign is to provide Member Associations and clubs with much needed funds to improve floodlighting on football fields across NSW, whether that be new floodlights or updating and improving current floodlighting at local football fields.


The key objectives of the campaign are to:

  • Improve the quality of light at community football facilities
  • Improve the experience for players, referees, coaches’ administrators and spectators
  • Provide additional open space to play more football
  • Provide an inviting and safe environment to participate in


The level of funding for each project is limited to 20% of the total project cost with a maximum of $20,000.


This grant opportunity relates to floodlighting projects ONLY and includes the following:

  • New floodlighting (existing pitches with no previous floodlighting)
  • Upgrades to improve current lighting, including:
    • The provision of new poles
    • Increasing the lux levels of existing pitches, i.e. new lights/lamps
