More FIFA funds for Christchurch

8:34 am on 4 November 2011

FIFA has approved a funding request from the Oceania Football Confederation for Christchurch and the earthquake-ravaged city will receive $380,000 to be used for repairing and constructing football facilities in the city.

The new money follows a FIFA grant of $500,000 to build an all-weather training pitch which opened in Christchurch last month.
