Grants & Funding

Investing for the future

From building a new facility to buying a new team kit, developing the game takes money.

Working in partnership with the Football Foundation, Sport England, Local Authorities and partner organisations, we aim shine to a light on the funding opportunities and grants available to the football community in Leicestershire & Rutland.

So whether you are looking to start new teams, retain existing ones, develop coaches, purchase equipment, renovate facilities or develop new ones…We commit to supporting all funding applications from county clubs, leagues and facility providers with advice and guidance.

Find information on national and local funding opportunities below.
