The Victorian Government is getting on with building the sports infrastructure our communities deserve.

Member for Eastern Metropolitan Region, Shaun Leane MP, today announced the North Ringwood Saints are a big winner from the 2017/18 Victorian Budget.

As part of the Budget, the Victorian Government has kicked in $10,000 to help Maroondah City Council install lighting at Quambee Reserve – the home of Saints senior teams.

Mr Leane thanked project partners North Ringwood Football Club and Maroondah City Council.

Victorian sports clubs are the lifeblood of our local communities, and they deserve modern, safe and inclusive facilities.

The new lighting allows the North Ringwood Football Club to better utilise Quambee Reserve, open its doors to more community members, and say goodbye to outdated facilities.

Since being elected, the Andrews Labor Government has continually invested in initiatives to make sure our suburban and regional clubs have the modern facilities they need to grow.

The 2017/18 Victorian Budget is investing $332.8 million to improve sports facilities to cement Victoria as the sporting capital of the world.

It includes our $110 million Community Sports Infrastructure Fund to upgrade more local facilities across the state, of which $14 million has been dedicated to upgrade or build female-friendly facilities.
