Queensland Government $50 million of sports funding to get the state back into community sport

The Queensland Government will spend more than $50 million on community sports in an effort to get clubs ready to operate under new COVID-19 restrictions.

 

From June 13, sports teams with up to 20 people will be allowed to resume, in line with strict coronavirus restrictions, including non-contact provisions. Full contact sport, and all other activities with larger groups, can resume a month later

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says the $50m would be given as grants to help clubs get ready for the “new normal”.

“That includes $2,000 funding grants for up to 7,000 clubs state-wide to buy their cleaning equipment and other essentials,” she said.

“So, as we carefully start to resume training, sanitising balls, racquets and facilities before and after use is an absolute must to keep everyone and our communities safe.”

“It gives them time to get their COVID-safe plans in place and so that parents are aware and children as well.”

The Queensland Government will also look to get kids back into community sport by offering financial support to Parents whose incomes have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

As sporting clubs prepare for a return to training and play from June 13, families that show proof of a financial hit affected by the pandemic will receive Vouchers of $150.
