Funding Available for Creating New Female and Disability Football Teams

| Return|

The Football Foundation has re-opened its “Grow the Game” grants scheme, aimed at supporting the involvement of traditionally underrepresented groups in community football. The focus is on creating new female and disability football teams.

Organisations can apply for grants of £1,500 for every new team created. A total of £1.5 million will be awarded in grants this year.

The funding can contribute towards a combination of the following essential costs:

  • Facility hire.

  • Referees fees.

  • DBS checks.

  • Affiliation fees.

  • League entry.

  • Promotion and publicity.

  • FA coaching courses.

  • Additional courses.

  • Football kit/equipment (through a bespoke voucher).

This is an extremely popular scheme, and applications will be assessed on a first come first serve basis.

The final deadline for applications is 31 May 2020.

How To Apply

The application window is open between 26 February 2020 and 31 May 2020. Applications will be assessed on a first come first serve basis.

The Foundation strongly recommends that before making an application, organisations should contact the local County Football Association's Development Manager to discuss their project.

Applications are made using the online application portal on the Football Foundation's website.
