Moorebank Liverpool District Hockey Club (MLDHC) has received a Christmas bonus from the NSW Government following the awarding of grants in the Greater Cities Sport Facility Fund.
They have shared in more than $20 million for new and upgraded sports facilities in Round 2 of the Fund.
MLDHC will receive $641,956 to replace the existing surface of the synthetic turf hockey field and its watering system, while also upgrading the existing field lighting at Liverpool City Hockey Complex.
State Member for Holsworthy, Melanie Gibbons MP, said the awarding of funding was a welcome boost for local sport which was hit hard by the COVID-19 restrictions.
“2021 has been a tough year for everyone, including our sporting sector with sport postponed due to COVID,” Ms Gibbons said.
“The awarding of these grants provides renewed optimism that 2022 will be a better year for sport and recreation across NSW.”
The Greater Cities Sport Facility Fund has provided up to $49 million over two years to increase participation and promote healthy lifestyles across NSW.
32 sporting organisations were successful in being awarded funding in Round 2 of the Fund.
The Fund provided grants from $100,000 to $1 million to eligible sport and recreation organisations and councils for projects such as lighting, amenity and changeroom upgrades.
