Support Melbourne Victory at Footscray Park

Melbourne Victory and Maribyrnong Council have plans to build an Elite Melbourne Victory training centre at Footscray Park. 

The site proposed is currently an un-used space at Footscray Park, it needs a big investment and council have marked this particular site for the MV training academy. MV and the government are funding this and the council are requesting after hours use. 
The community has a lot of open spaces still within Footscray Park that are successfully being used for events like the New Years event amongst other things including playgrounds, walking trails, bbq facilities etc. I do not believe we are losing any open spaces, as this part of Footscray isn’t in use and providing a Sports Academy with after hours community use is a great investment for the Western Suburbs.

I believe this is a fantastic opportunity for the Western Suburbs and kids in soccer and sport. It will link in with our local sports clubs, our local schools both primary and secondary, particularly Maribyrnong College which is a sports college. It also means we won’t have to travel so far to participate in these elite programs and the Western Suburbs will finally get an investment in Elite sport which we have lacked and desperately need.
Will you help me let the council know that we support Melbourne Victory and welcome them to Footscray and the West?
This is important, this is the future of our sport and our kids, our voices need to be heard and our children need a voice to support their future in sport.
If you would like to join my campaign and give your support for please sign this petition.

Thank you
