A Shorten Labor Government, if elected will provide $7.44 million to support the completion of the Football Federation South Australia State Centre for Football at Gepps Cross.

The Centre will be a home for football in SA and provide facilities for everything from grassroots participation in the form of social five-a-side to talent pathways programs and elite squad training and games.

Our commitment builds on the former South Australian Labor State government's commitment of $19 million in February 2018. At State and Federal level, Labor supports the World Game in SA.
