Victorian Labor commits $500,000 to Northcote City FC if re-elected

·

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has today announced that a re-elected Labor Government will commit $500,000 in funding to Northcote City FC for new facilities at John Cain Memorial Park.

The announcement was confirmed by Member for Northcote, Kat Theophanous MP, on her Facebook page.

Ms Theophanous said the funding will go towards new female-friendly changing rooms and bathrooms at the park, “which are critical to encourage more women and girls in our suburbs to play the world game.”

“The inner north has a deep love of sport and backing our local clubs is something I’ll always do,” the Greek Australian politician continued.

“It’s an honour to support Northcote City with a commitment to much needed upgrades that will take their clubrooms to the next level.”

Northcote City has a strong Greek history, having been formed in 1960 by a group of Greek migrants new to Australia with a passion for sport and a need to form friendships in a new country.

The Club first secured its move to John Cain Memorial Park in 1980 and, besides football, it is also used for lawn bowls competitions and international cycling events.
