We work closely with The Football Foundation, who are the UK’s largest sporting charity and distribute funding from The FA, Sport England and The Premier League. Our Local Football Facility Plans have identified key strategic projects we will prioritise to deliver over the next 10 years across four key investment pillars: 3G Artificial Grass Pitches, grass pitch improvements on key multi-pitch sites, changing room pavilions/clubhouses and recreational spaces for football.


Outside of our Local Football Facility Plans, there is funding available for a number of things including:

  • Goalposts
  • Perimeter Fencing
  • Minor Works to Changing Rooms and Clubhouse Refurbishment
  • Pitch Maintenance Machinery
  • Portable Floodlights
  • Storage Containers
