The $265m sports lolly scramble

Who gets the spoils from a $265m financial relief package for sports? The Extra Time Podcast asks some of those vying for the special funds. 

Roll up, roll up! Join the sporting lolly scramble.

The government has put up $265m for its sports relief package. But will the funding simply prop up a system many have thought to be in decay for decades?

What opportunities has the Covid-19 crisis presented sport from the professional level to grassroots?

Extra Time is joined by Netball New Zealand, the New Zealand Amateur Sports Association, the Players Association and White Fern Suzie Bates to discuss how that money should be spent.
