Montmorency Football and Cricket Club receives $1 Million from the 2022/23 Budget to upgrade pavilion

03 May 2022

Minister for Community Sport, Ros Spence announced that Montmorency Football and Cricket Club have received over $1 million in funding from the Victorian 2022/23 Budget to upgrade their sports pavilion.

This project as part of the Local Sports Infrastructure Fund – which is providing $88 million in 2022/23 to deliver new and improved community sports infrastructure and programs to boost participation in local sports clubs and organisations.

The popular Local Sports Infrastructure Fund will continue delivering critical upgrades to pitches, ovals and pavilions in partnership with local councils and sporting organisations.

It will also have a focus on female friendly change rooms and facilities to encourage more women and girls to get involved in local sport.

This will create hundreds of jobs across a range of professions including designers, architects, engineers, builders, and maintenance staff.

This comes after enormous amount of community support and advocacy from Montmorency Clubs that signed and passed on a petition which made this project a reality.
