Hawthorn’s vision to provide a world-class sporting destination for the entire community has taken a significant step forward with the Federal Government making a $15 million investment into the Kennedy Community Centre.
The Government’s contribution will support Hawthorn’s own investment into the project which will be in excess of $30 million.
Announcing the funding, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack spoke to the significant impact the Kennedy Community Centre will have on the local community.
“I know how important it is to have an inclusive, accessible centre that caters for all levels of athletes, including teams in the AFL, AFLW and VFLW,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.
SMC has been working with Hawthorn Football Club since 2018 to help see the project delivered.
