The Victoria Point Magic Football Club are a step closer to finding a permanent home, with a $103,600 kick start from the Queensland Government’s Get Playing Places and Spaces grants program.
Making the announcement today at Donald Road Sports Field, Minister for Sport Mick de Brenni says the grant would be a welcome boost for the club, which is currently looking for a permanent home base and says the ball is now in Redland City Council’s court.
“A soccer club is not just about running around kicking goals, it’s also about community. A clubhouse provides a focal point for the club, both for social activities and to store equipment. “The final piece of the puzzle will need to come from Council – we’ll fund the clubhouse, but Council needs to provide the land.”
Mr de Brenni says that getting involved in regular, organised sport offers incredible opportunities for Queenslanders to become more connected with their communities.
Get Playing Places and Spaces provides funding of up to $150,000 to develop new, upgraded or replacement sport and recreation infrastructure.
