Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund Opens for Applications (England)

The Football Foundation has announced that the new £102 million Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund  has opened for applications.

The Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund, which is available to football clubs, schools, councils and local sports associations, is focused on supporting the development of new or refurbished local football facilities, and replaces the previous Facilities Scheme, Build the Game and the Premier League Community Facility Fund.

The Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund gives grants of between £10,000 and £500,000 for projects that:

  • Improve facilities for football and other sport in local communities
  • Sustain or increase participation amongst children and adults, regardless of background age, or ability
  • Help children and adults to develop their physical, mental, social and moral capacities through regular participation in sport.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate that all available options for match funding have been exhausted and to be able to provide evidence for this. As a guide, projects would normally be expected to secure 50% match funding although each project will be assessed based on individual circumstances.

The Football Foundation strongly recommend that applicants use the pre-application advice offered on their behalf by The FA and the network of County FAs around England.
