New fund­ing pro­gram an­nounced

Mansfield Courier - - Sport Courier -

MY Sport Live - to­gether with Any­time Fit­ness (Vic­to­ria) - is proud to an­nounce a new fund­ing pro­gram for 2019, which will al­low our lo­cal sport­ing clubs the op­por­tu­nity to live stream mar­quee events for free.

Thanks to this new ini­tia­tive, Vic­to­rian sport­ing clubs will be able to ac­cess a pool of $30,000 worth of fund­ing to stream events across mul­ti­ple plat­forms.

The grant pro­gram it­self is de­signed to give clubs the op­por­tu­nity to pro­mote them­selves, their events, their sport and their peo­ple across both their own com­mu­nity and the wider com­mu­nity as well.

One event per month will be se­lected to be part of this in­no­va­tive new ini­tia­tive and the pro­gram web page has now gone live at www. mys­portlive.tv/grants.

My Sport Live man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, An­drew Weiss, said that the pro­gram will be pro­vid­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to help clubs and sports tap into the much-needed sup­port to be able to show­case their events through dig­i­tal plat­forms.

“It re­ally is very ex­cit­ing to be able to make the an­nounce­ment to launch this ini­tia­tive that will help grass-root sport and sport­ing com­mu­ni­ties in Vic­to­ria,” Mr Weiss said.

“Thanks to Any­time Fit­ness, this is the first step in the dream to help make stream­ing avail­able to sports at no cost, and now this has be­come a re­al­ity.

“We will work to­gether with the suc­cess­ful fund­ing ap­pli­cants to en­sure they get the most out of stream­ing their event and hope that we can also con­nect them to fur­ther fu­ture sup­port through their lo­cal Any­time Fit­ness gyms.”

Any­time Fit­ness are the big­gest gym chain in Aus­tralia; and in Vic­to­ria alone they have 96 gyms scat­tered through­out the state with more than 500,000 mem­bers na­tion­ally.

Talk­ing about the pro­gram, Any­time Fit­ness franchise owner and head of the Vic­to­rian Mar­ket­ing Group, Fred Drew, said that the chain is stoked to be help­ing give back to lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties, such as Mans­field.

“We know that sport and sport­ing clubs play such a sig­nif­i­cant and im­por­tant role in bring­ing com­mu­ni­ties to­gether, and al­low­ing peo­ple to par­tic­i­pate in ac­tiv­i­ties that they love,” he said.

“In that re­gard, we feel that the con­nec­tion through this pro­gram be­tween Any­time Fit­ness and sport­ing clubs is a nat­u­ral one.

“We are all about com­mu­nity and help­ing to pro­mote health, ac­tiv­ity, friend­ship and com­mu­nity and we know that with this pro­gram we can help to achieve all of these things.

“We are re­ally look­ing for­ward to work­ing with sport­ing clubs all over the state, and con­tin­u­ing our won­der­ful part­ner­ship with My Sport Live to help ben­e­fit as many peo­ple as we can.

All the de­tails of the pro­gram, in­clud­ing how to ap­ply, can be found via www. mys­portlive.tv/grants.
