Sporting events bring participants from around New Zealand to Christchurch and provide opportunities for local sporting bodies to strengthen and develop their sport in Christchurch.
The Small Sports Events Fund is open to sports associations, clubs or event managers who may make more than one application per funding round as long as each application is for a separate event.
Successful events will clearly demonstrate their contribution to the Council funding outcomes and priorities. Organisations must be able to demonstrate their ability to contribute towards their event and not rely on Council funding as their sole source of income.
Previously the Small Sports Events Fund could support event organisers with funding up to a maximum of $2,000 per event. This is currently under review and may change, given this please ensure your funding requests reflect the level of funding you require.
A full event budget will be required with your funding application. The budget will need to outline all event expenses and income.
Budget information should be based on quotes from suppliers you intend to use. You will be able to attach the budget within the funding application.
