FA Grow the Game Funding

Grow the Game is back for the 10th year in a row with £1.5m available for clubs to turn their aspirations of creating new female and disability teams into reality.

The scheme, which is funded by The FA and Sport England, and delivered by the Football Foundation, prioritises support for traditionally under-represented groups in grassroots football and last year's edition gave approximately 16,000 people the chance to get involved by creating 884 female and 257 disability teams respectively.

Grow the Game grants of £1,500 will be made available for every new team created, helping to relieve the financial burden on clubs by contributing towards FA coaching courses, first aid kits, league affiliation costs, referees' fees, new kit or equipment.

The application window for Grow the Game is now open and closes on 31st May providing the budget has not been committed by this date.

I have attached two PDF documents to help you with your applications however if you require more information on the scheme please feel free to contact myself or my colleague Steve Conboy (Women & Girls) on info@westridingfa.com or visit the Football Foundation website.
