More than $60,000 has been approved to upgrade drainage and irrigation at Cooroora United Football Club in the Nicklin electorate.

Sport Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said the small-scale infrastructure projects, which include lighting and irrigation upgrades, will help clubs recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and get more Queenslanders active.

“These funds mean clubs and councils right across the state will be able to enhance their facilities and encourage new sign ups as they continue to recover from the pandemic,” Minister Hinchliffe said.

“Improved facilities make the playing experience more enjoyable for club members, especially when they can run around on a high quality surface that is brightly lit, well-watered and drains efficiently after heavy rain.”

Member for Nicklin, Rob Skelton MP said the grants program will assists local clubs in our community to bounce back after a difficult few years with the State Government providing more than $9.7 million to 104 club/s across Queensland as part of the Active Gameday Projects fund.

“This is a great opportunity for our sporting clubs in Nicklin to improve their lighting, drainage and irrigation as our community continues to recover from the pandemic.” said Mr Skelton.

“This is what Labor government’s do, they deliver for our community.
CUFC President Nathan said the Club would like to thank all involved in the making of this grant come together.

“Our community greatly appreciates this funding and our members will enjoy playing on the improved surface, thanks to better drainage.” Mr Harris said.
