Funding for Football Clubs to Prepare for Safe Resumption of Games and Return of Supporters

09 September 2020/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Applications for a new Fund that aims to get football clubs ready for matchdays are being invited from National League System Clubs (Steps 1-6), Welsh Premier League Clubs and FA Women's Pyramid Clubs (Tier 1-5).

Eligible clubs can apply for grants of between £1,000 and £20,000. The available grant size will depend on the tier that the club is playing at.

The grants are to be used for covering the costs of implementing COVID-19 risk assessment and action plans.

The funding should be spent in one or more of the following areas:

  • Keeping facilities and equipment clean.

  • Maintaining social distancing and avoiding congestion.

  • Promoting good hygiene.

Clubs can use the grants for costs such as building repairs and modifications, cleaning and sanitisation, implementing contactless payment systems, PPE equipment for staff or volunteers, signage and floor marking or safe travel to and from away games.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on 16 September 2020.
