What did Sport gain from the 2013 Budget

Wednesday, November 28, 2012, 19:00
In his budget 2013 budget speech on Wednesday evening Minister Tonio Fenech must have made happy several individuals especially members of the Rugby community as it was revealed that the MRFU has now the confirmation that the Government has dedicated the sum of €500,000 for the development of a rugby stadium facility on a land that government has already handed to the association.
Other incentives for Sports in the 2013 Budget include the increase in vote to sport tourism a sector that has already generated more than 134,000 bed night. It is calculated that this niche tourism market has left in the Maltese economy €7.3m.
The 20/20 scheme will now be extended to coaches. This is a great news indeed for those coaches who earlier were deprived from this initiative. This scheme gives the opportunity to KMS registered athletes (and now coaches) to work for 20 hours a week with the remaining 20 hours of the week dedicated to training.

Government is also promising an additional 13 new football grounds with synthetic turf that will be added to the already completed and inaugurated 33 pitches which were completed in conjunction with the MFA through UEFA funds.

Last but not least a refund of 15.25% in sports equipment will be granted for people who but this equipment for domestic use. This is being introduced in order to encourage more families and individuals to exercise at home.
