State Football Centre

Local women's teams will benefit through a new $2.4 million Women's World Cup Legacy Grants program, with each NPL club eligible for up to $300,000 in funding for infrastructure and facility improvements that support women's participation.

The recently completed State Football Centre in Queens Park, which has been the Matildas' training base since they arrived in Perth, will also benefit as part of the legacy package.

The $50.8 million facility currently incorporates 2 full-sized FIFA standard football pitches with lighting, 3 five-a-side playing pitches, sport science facilities, changing rooms, function room and a main administration building. It is also the home of Football West.

The $6.1 million investment includes 2 additional pitches and lighting, as part of expansion plans for the modern facility. The centre provides state-of-the-art training and playing facilities that also support community and high-performance football programs.

The total package also includes additional support for Football West to provide a further boost for grassroots football in WA, through their work as the governing body, and follows a $15 million increase to the Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund.
