Vic State Basketball Centre budget upgraded to $130m
"State Basketball Centre expansion receives budget upgrade" - Basketball Victoria website
$130M pumped into the facility to take it to 16 courts and additional administration areas.
"The additional $22 million, announced in the Victorian State Budget, is on top of the original funding announced in 2018, provided by the Victorian State Government ($83M) and Knox City Council ($25M). The expansion will increase capacity at the State Basketball Centre to 16 courts, encompassing 10 new indoor community courts and high-performance training facilities for athletes within Victorian and national teams as well as WNBL and NBL franchises."
I had thought a while ago, there was talk of expanding the show court area capacity, to make it more suitable for NBL regular season games? No mention of this in the release that I saw. Is this still on the cards?
Great news for local basketball nonetheless.
