On the back of helping playing surfaces get match-fit through the Pitch Preparation Fund, I’m delighted to give you a heads-up about a new funding scheme the Football Foundation are launching next week that will help make your buildings a safer environment for when football restarts.
The Club Preparation Fund will launch on Monday 29 June. Grants of up to £500 will be available to help FA National League System clubs purchase items, such as hand sanitizer, or to carry out essential maintenance work, such as ensuring there’s running water. Grassroots football clubs and organisations, Welsh Cymru Premier League clubs, and clubs in The FA Women’s Pyramid (Tier 1-5) are also eligible.
We’ll send you an email next Monday with all the details of the fund and a link to apply to send out to your Clubs.
