Women who play sport in regional NSW are set to benefit from an injection of funding from the NSW government to improve facilities.
The government is pledging $50 million to pay for new or improved women's change rooms and other amenities to support women's sport.
Deputy Premier John Barilaro on Wednesday said the funding would make it easier for women and girls to participate in sport.
"Women have been flying the flag for Australian sport with our international teams achieving incredible status on the world platform, and many of these athletes come from regional communities," Mr Barilaro said in a statement.
"Too many women participating in local soccer, AFL, rugby or cricket matches in rural and regional locations don't have access to suitable changing facilities so the NSW government has committed this funding to level the playing field."
The government will make another $50 million available for sports-related infrastructure and community amenity projects.
Applications for the funding, which is round four of the Stronger Country Communities Fund, open in May.
