COVID support for community sport

COVID 19 continues to impact sporting clubs and leagues. The Victorian Government is therefore providing supporting grants of $2,000 to help cover the costs of events that have been unable to proceed, or will have to be cancelled or postponed due to lockdowns.

The Sporting Club Grants Program remains open and the Government urges clubs and leagues to examine if they are eligible for support.

In total, the Government has provided almost $40 million to clubs, leagues and associations through the Community Sport Sector COVID-19 Survival Package. This includes additional support of almost $8 million to local clubs, leagues and associations in June as part of the third round of the program.

The Victorian Government supports sporting leagues, clubs, their players and members and will continue to look at further avenues of assistance through this difficult time.
