Big news – Community sport is back from June 13

Community Sport

27 May, 2020 –

As Queensland clubs warm up for the return of community sport, the Palaszczuk Government is ensuring the coming season is COVID-safe, with a $51.3 million Return to Play recovery assistance package.

Local sports clubs and communities have been impacted by COVID-19 and most will now need financial support to get back into action and importantly having all the right checks in place.

The Return to Play package consists of:

  • COVID SAFE Active Clubs Kickstart with grants of $2,000 for up to 7,000 clubs;
  • $150 FairPlay vouchers to cover sign on fees for 73,000 children from low income families;
  • Active Restart Infrastructure Recovery Fund with grants for minor works of up to $20,000 for clubs;
  • Active Industry Fund providing $10.8 million across 77 state-level sporting and recreation organisations.
