Football NSW, together with Northern NSW Football and the NSW Government, are thrilled to announce the opening of Round 2 of the NSW Football Legacy Fund.

Forming part of the $10 million NSW Football Legacy Program, the Legacy Fund aims to transform football facilities, enhance participation opportunities and strengthen female player pathways across the state.

Round 2 of the Legacy Fund will provide up to $2.67 million of investment towards the upgrade or construction of new community facilities, and up to $560,000 for programs that support increased football participation and leadership development.

Football NSW CEO John Tsatsimas was excited at the prospect of seeing millions more invested into community football.

“Round 2 of the NSW Football Legacy Fund will once again provide a fantastic opportunity for clubs and associations across NSW to improve infrastructure and increase participation,” he said.

“Round 1 saw almost $2.5 million distributed for infrastructure upgrades and over $600,000 for participation initiatives.

“With over $3 million once again available in Round 2, the Legacy Fund provides the perfect opportunity for the Football NSW community to secure essential funding for the future. We encourage Clubs and Associations to consider applications for either stream.”

NSW Minister for Sport, Steve Kamper, was committed to ensuring everyone involved in football across the state will benefit from NSW hosting the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™.

“From girls and boys lacing up their boots for the first time to participants in elite development programs, all levels of football will benefit from the NSW Football Legacy Program,” he said.

“As we move forward, we are excited to witness the positive changes that the NSW Football Legacy Fund will bring to football communities throughout the state.

“By investing in infrastructure upgrades, participation initiatives, and leadership programs, we aim to create a sustainable and inclusive football environment for generations to come.”

Round 2 of the Legacy Fund is now open with the Infrastructure Stream closing on Friday 11 August and the Participation Stream closing Friday 7 July 2023.
