Football clubs and organisations that manage their own building and have a minimum 12 months security of tenure can apply for grants from a new £2.19 million funding pot, allowing them to make necessary changes and modifications to their premises before reopening.

The funding is to be spent in the following three key areas:

  • Providing waste bins.
  • Providing paper towel dispensers.
  • Providing signage and floor marking.
  • Building repairs and modifications.
  • Carrying out professional inspections or testing on water quality or gas and electric.
