Funding available for community clubs ahead of restart

Almost £2.2m in grants is being made available by the Football Foundation to help non-league and community clubs get their facilities ready to host fans again.

Following recent guidance issued by The FA for the restarting of football activity, eligible clubs and organisations will now be able to apply for a fixed £500 grant to make the necessary changes and modifications to allow them to reopen.

Clubs can spend the grants on keeping clubhouses and equipment clean, maintaining social distancing and avoiding congestion, and promoting good hygiene.

Any club that wants to apply for a grant to help with toilets, hand sanitisers, waste, and more, should check the eligibility criteria on the Club Preparation Fund website.

The deadline for applications is Sunday 19th July 2020.
