For the second successive year, Football NSW has praised the decision by the City of Canterbury Bankstown Council to waive ground hire costs in a bid to lessen the financial burden placed upon both the Bankstown District Amaetur Football Association and the Canterbury District Soccer Football Association Clubs all of which have been heavily affected by Covid.
Hailed as a generous and much needed move for community football in the area, City of Canterbury Bankstown Council led by Mayor Khal Asfour, decided to waive ground hire costs for sporting clubs and associations with seasonal bookings at Council managed sports grounds and facilities for the winter 2021 season.
Football NSW CEO Stuart Hodge highlighted his support for the action delivered by Canterbury Bankstown Council.
“Well done to Canterbury Bankstown Council for pushing its support behind our code in what have been tough times for the sport.
“Decisions and moves such as this from Canterbury Bankstown Council go a long way to assuring our clubs and players are well supported and will continue to provide a positive and significant benefit to the community.”
Both Bankstown District Football Association’s General Manager Leanne Millar and Canterbury District Soccer Football Association CEO Ian Homes were grateful with the ongoing support of the Mayor, elected Councillors and Senior Management of the City of Canterbury Bankstown Council.
