source Federal Sports Minister Bridget McKenzie and Senator Steve Martin made the announcement in Devonport on Monday morning, revealing the club will receive a grant of $385,000, as part of the Sport Australia Community Infrastructure Fund which will be used to help fund facility upgrades.

The project will provide the necessary amenities and privacy for female and junior sporting participants as well as female match officials that is currently lacking.

see With over 2,000 grant applications submitted nationally for the $30 million of funding on offer, receiving the grant is a major boon for the club, and is the result of extensive work that went into compiling the application. Football Federation Tasmania CEO, Matt Bulkeley, welcomed the announcement and paid credit to the hard work of all involved in the successful bid. “Football Federation Tasmania would like to acknowledge the great support of Senator Steve Martin in lobbying for these upgrades, and thank the Federal Government for making this possible.”

The need for these upgrades is due to the continual growth in female and junior participation numbers, which reflects the games strength in the region and these upgraded facilities will allow for greater access and opportunities for all of our players.”
