Dunoon United Football Club want to provide more opportunities for female players at the club. They would like to build a new female change-room for players and referees.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced $32,220 for the club to build this new facility.
“I am very pleased to be able to support the Club with this funding,” Mr Hogan said.
“It will be used to construct a referee room for female match officials and will also provide sun protection.”
“Currently there are no facilities and this is a real barrier for female participation.”
“I congratulate Dunoon United on this project, it will benefit the club and the whole community.”
Dunoon United Football Club Secretary Rob Gatt said the project was very important for the future of the club.
“Giving women their own space will increase female participation for both players and officials,” Mr Gatt said.
“The club has been planning this upgrade for some time. We’re excited to see it started.”
