Budget 2020

17 May 2020

Minister for Sport and Recreation Grant Robertson has today announced a $264.6m investment into the Sport and Recreation sector as part of Budget 2020.

The package of investment recognises the important role play, active recreation and sport has in contributing to New Zealand’s economy, and on our mental and physical wellbeing.  It also recognises the significant impact COVID-19 has had on the sector and provides us with an opportunity to come out of the current crisis stronger.

The package of investment will be spread over four years, and Sport NZ will work through how and where it is targeted by collaborating with our current partners and wider stakeholders in the sector.

“To make the most of this opportunity we need many minds and many voices. This dialogue will commence tomorrow with Sport NZ’s current partners and will continue in the coming days and weeks with broader stakeholders,” says Sport NZ Chief Executive Peter Miskimmin.

More information will be shared in due course.
