Funding for Football Clubs to Prepare their Buildings to Safely Reopen

Football clubs and organisations can apply for grants to get their buildings ready for a safe restarting of football activity, in line with Government coronavirus/COVID-19 guidance.

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:

  • Keeping the clubhouse and equipment clean.
  • Maintaining social distancing and avoiding congestion.
  • Promoting good hygiene.

Grants of £500 each will be awarded and can be used to cover costs such as:

  • Providing hand sanitiser dispensers.
  • 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.
  • Repairing hand basins and providing hot water.
  • Installing safety screening and contactless payment systems.

The deadline for applications is 19 July 2020.
