The Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund is available to football clubs, schools, councils and local sports associations. It is focused on supporting the development of new or refurbished local football facilities, improving the experience of playing the national game at the lowest levels, and helping to increase participation in football across the country. The Fund is managed by the Football Foundation on behalf of its funding partners – the Premier League, The FA and the Government, via Sport England. The Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund gives grants for projects that:
  • Improve facilities for football and other sport in local communities.
  • Sustain or increase participation amongst children and adults, regardless of background age, or ability.
  • Help children and adults to develop their physical, mental, social and moral capacities through regular participation in sport.
The types of facilities they give money for include:
  • Grass pitches drainage/improvements
  • Pavilions, clubhouses and changing rooms
  • 3G Football Turf Pitches (FTPs) and multi-use games areas
  • Fixed floodlights for artificial pitches.

Application Information

The maximum grant available from the Foundation for each facilities project is £500,000. The minimum grant available from the Foundation through this scheme is £10,000. Applicants must demonstrate a financial need for grant aid and provide evidence that all available options for match funding have been exhausted.
