The Grow the Game scheme is designed to increase participation in our national game by helping clubs with the costs associated with creating new teams, which will give opportunities to those who have limited options to join a team.
The following types of team are eligible for a grant in 2016:
- Male teams from the Under-14 age bracket and above
- Female teams
- Disability teams
Applications are only being accepted for teams within these target groups providing they meet the basic eligibility criteria. £1,500 is available for each new team that a club creates with the grants, the amount is aimed at covering the costs incurred for league entry, referees’ fees, first aid kits, FA coaching courses, football strips and more.
The application window for Grow the Game applications will open on Monday 1 February 2016 and close on Thursday 10 March 2016.
