A $15,000 grant has been allocated for a West Coast Fever vs Queensland Firebirds pre-season event in Mandurah in February.

The State Government announced the grant to enrich sport and recreation in regional WA.

The grant is part of the latest round of the Country Sport Enrichment Scheme (CSES) funding for sport lovers to get a chance to see and participate in a series of local events and community activations.

The CSES supports organisations to deliver international, national or State events and provide access to sport development opportunities in regional WA.

Sport and Recreation Minister Mick Murray said the Country Sport Enrichment Scheme is a valuable initiative which gets high-quality sporting events and participation opportunities out to the regions.

“This is a perfect chance for sports fans to see their heroes play close to home – and for local youngsters to get inspiration for their own sporting dreams,” he said.

“It is important that country people get proper opportunities to have quality sport experiences close to home – and as the Minister, I am committed to continuing to grow sport in country areas.”
