Supporting grassroots sport at Kingswood Oval

29 Apr 2019

A re-elected Morrison Government will provide $500,000 to deliver upgraded facilities for the Unley Mercedes Jets Football Club at Kingswood Oval.

Nicolle Flint said providing facilities to support local clubs was a key priority for the Liberal and Nationals because of the significant benefits to the broader community.

“Delivering upgraded facilities at Kingswood Oval will support the Unley Jets Football Club as well as the Unley Cricket Club, and will cater for the growth in player numbers at these fantastic local clubs,” Ms Flint said.

“The new facilities will also support greater use by local residents and the community.

“I am so proud to support grassroots sport and community upgrades like this one”.

Federal funding for the Kingswood Oval upgrade is only possible because of the Morrison Government’s plan for a stronger economy.

“Only the Liberals and Nationals have a proven track record when it comes to managing the Budget,” Ms Flint said.

“By paying down debt and growing the economy, we can afford to deliver funding for priorities in local communities such as upgrading the facilities at Kingswood Oval.

“This is all at risk under Labor and Bill Shorten who pose the greatest risk to Australia’s economy in a generation with plans for $387 billion in new taxes on small and family businesses, retirees, housing, income, investments, electricity and cars”.
