AFL Queensland has reinforced its commitment to investing in the future of the state league competition and grass roots football; announcing that grants have been issued to all Queensland Australian Football League (QAFL) clubs.
Each of the 10 QAFL clubs has received a grant to be used across a variety of areas that will continue the growth of clubs, both on and off the field.
Each club has worked closely with AFL Queensland to devise a strategy for grant spending that satisfied the requirements, with a focus on sustainability and growth.
The grants will be used to help advance the clubs in areas such as facilities, match day operations, sponsorship, education and welfare.
AFL Queensland Football Operations Manager, Craig Millar, said the grants will ensure the continued advancement of the state league competition.
“It’s fantastic that we can give all QAFL clubs these grants to help them continue to increase their operations and facilities,” Millar said.
“The QAFL is the top state league competition here in Queensland, so it’s vitally important that it continues to go from strength to strength each year, and we believe the strategies each club has presented will do that.”
Clubs will begin implementing projects funded by the grants in 2016.
