Massive funding boost for sport in Cranbourne

An elected Liberal Nationals Government will contribute $1.5million towards a huge overhaul of the facilities at Casey Fields on Oval 2.

The Cranbourne Senior Football and Netball Club facilities are in desperate need of upgrading including the asphalting the carpark and installing a new perimeter fence.

In a major boost for female participation in sport, the new upgrade will add additional female change room facilities and shelter at the netball courts.

Improved lighting around the ground will mean teams can train outside afterhours and a new Grandstand pavilion will mean a more comfortable and enjoyable experience for spectators.

Building on the facilities that have rapidly been superseded by growth, this vital addition will enable sufficient capacity to host events and activities in view of all the on-field action.

Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Sport, Danny O’Brien:

“Victorians love their footy, but there’s nothing fair about Dan’s deal with the AFL when the facilities here at Casey Fields are inadequate for large clubs.

Unlike Daniel Andrews who has decided to give the AFL a massive $225 million free kick to upgrade facilities at Etihad Stadium, the Liberal Nationals are getting behind our local sporting clubs.”

Comments attributable to Liberal candidate for Cranbourne, Ann Marie Hermans:

“I’m passionate about local sport and the benefits it brings to our young people and our community at large.

This funding boost will mean so much to the teams that play on Oval 2 at Casey Fields.”
