If you are looking to renovate or build a football facility, this section of the website is to guide you in the right direction; key to delivering any facility project is engagement with the Leicestershire & Rutland County FA.
The Leicestershire & Rutland County FA’s Head of Football Development has a key role to support facility development. This may involve support to gauge project feasibility, guiding you through the funding that may be available and most appropriate and assistance with Business & Football Development Planning.
The Leicestershire & Rutland County FA recognises the importance of high quality facilities for football across Leicestershire & Rutland and works hard with key stakeholders to understand the demand for facilities, the need to protect playing fields and address any issues around the potential loss of facilities. Funding for facilities is constantly changing, but the Leicestershire & Rutland County FA aims to keep you up-to-date with the main funding bodies that can support the development of facilities.

1. Technical Standards

2. Facility Planning and Protecting Pitches
