Funded by the FA and delivered by the Football Foundation, the new £1 million Retain the Game fund will support adult male teams within grassroots football clubs.
Grants of £750 are being made available to clubs with existing male teams to support the essential costs of pitch hire, training venues, First Aid courses and playing kit/equipment.
Priority will be given to:
- Clubs with three or more adult male teams
- Clubs that have been in existence for 5-9 seasons
- Clubs that have been in existence for 10 of more seasons
- Clubs who operate in leagues employing Full Time
The grant will be awarded split across two years, and the grant instalment will vary depending on the status of the club.
Retain the Game is inclusive of players from different ethnic backgrounds, faiths and sexual orientations.
