Funding Available for Creating New Female and Disability Football Teams

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.
