The Foundation’s Grow the Game Scheme provides grants of up to £1,500 for the creation of new football teams and coaching qualifications, with money provided by The FA. The Scheme is delivered by the Foundation.
Grow the Game provides funding for projects that use football to increase participation by both players and volunteers.
They will accept applications in the following categories:
- Female teams – u7s to adult
- Disability teams
* Please note, existing adult male teams will soon be able to apply for support from a new FA, retention-focused scheme, due to be launched in April.
Applications are welcome from organisations that are ‘not for profit’ and planning to set up one or more new football teams over the next two years.
Organisations must have a signed constitution (with an appropriate dissolution clause), child protection policy, equal opportunities policy, bank statements and income/expenditure records (for all accounts held by the organisation).
