Funding boost for sporting events in Goondiwindi

In a boost to local sport and the regional economy, Goondiwindi Regional Council has been awarded $10,000 by the Liberal National Government for the Goondiwindi Golf and Cricket Gala Day.

Federal Member for Maranoa David Littleproud said the funding would support regional sport while also helping to boost local economies by attracting more visitors to regional areas to attend sporting events.

“The Goondiwindi Golf and Cricket Gala Day to be held on September 11 will bring the community together, attract visitors and stimulate the local economy after a challenging few years,” Mr Littleproud said.

“With funding of up to $50,000 available to host regionally based sporting events, the Liberal National Government is helping ensure regional communities can bounce back after the devastating effects of recent flooding.

“Applications received under the first tranche of funding have ranged from ‘come and try days’ to larger events such as state sporting championships that will engage the broader community and have flow on effects for local businesses.”

All local councils in regional, rural and remote areas across Australia can apply for funding under the Regional Sport Events Fund to host sporting events. Final applications for funding close on 29 April 2022.

Only the Liberal National Government will continue to deliver a better future for Maranoa under our plan to maintain a strong economy and ​build a stronger future.
