Pararoos Lose Funding

Monday 21st July / posted by Chris Wheeldon

Australia’s Paralympic football team, The Pararoos face an uncertain future after the Australian Sports Commission cut the team’s entire one hundred and seventy-five thousand dollar funding.

The decision has prompted Pararoos coach Paul Brown to launch an online petition and go public with his plea for funding.

The decision to cut funding is part of the Commission’s Winning Edge policy, which directs funding to teams likely to win medals at major sporting events.

The Pararoos are currently ranked tenth in the world, but now their future is unknown.

Pararoos National Head Coach, Paul Brown spoke to Tanya Bunter this morning.
