In partnership with Frankston City and the state government of Victoria, Frankston Basketball is committed to delivering the planned expansion of the Frankston Indoor Basketball Stadium.

Currently there is $7.5m dollars committed to this much needed project from Frankston City ($4m); Victorian Government ($2.5m); and Frankston Basketball ($1m).

Frankston Basketball in partnership with Frankston City wishes to see the funding currently committed to the expansion project matched dollar for dollar by the Australian Federal Government under its National Stronger Regions Fund.

Frankston Basketball is seeking to demonstrate the support this project has in the community by submitting as part of Frankston City's funding application, a petition from the Frankston Basketball community with as many signatures as can be gathered to be submitted in late October 2015 to the Federal House of Representatives.
