Strathbogie Shire welcomed $100,000 funding announcement from the Victorian Government’s Community Sports Infrastructure Fund – Cricket Facilities fund toward a major upgrade of Euroa’s Friendlies Oval.

The $210,000 upgrade will be funded through the grant in conjunction with a $50,000 contribution from the Friendlies Oval Committee of Management, which was raised through fundraising, and a $50,000 contribution from Strathbogie Shire Council.

Member for Northern Victoria, Jaclyn Symes visited the oval last week to make the funding announcement.

Strathbogie Shire Council Deputy Mayor John Mason described the project as a major windfall for the area.

"It is an incredible opportunity for Euroa, to establish what will be an iconic sporting ground at its completion, situated on one of the main entrances to the town.

"The end product will be a high calibre facility which will be valued and utilised by not only its many user groups but the whole community," he said.
