Cash splashed for the Cowboys
The money will enable the Cowboys to fully develop their community training and high performance centre.
Member for Mundingburra and Minister for Communities Coralee O’Rourke said the investment was a major boost for Townsville and the North Queensland Cowboys.
“We are happy the Cowboys achieving their vision in building this state-of-the-art facility will benefit not only the club but the entire community,” she said.
The $5 million grant will provide a climate-controlled training room, indoor training field, sports research facility and rehabilitation and preparation centre.
Member for Townsville Scott Stewart said the new facility would bring even more life to Townsville’s CBD and create construction as well as ongoing jobs for the community.
