The Football Association and Football Foundation have launched ‘Retain the Game’, a new scheme aimed at supporting the retention of adult male teams. The scheme will provide grants of £750 to clubs with existing male teams to support the essential costs of pitch hire, training venues, First Aid courses and playing kit/equipment.
The application window is now open and is due to close on Wednesday 30 May at 5pm.
What can the money be spent on?
The grant is designed to cover core costs including:
- Facility hire (match day or training venue)
- £100 Voucher for Nike Kit/Equipment (including First Aid) – to be redeemed through our bespoke portal
- First Aid course
The grant of £750 will be awarded split across two years. The grant instalment will vary depending on the status of the club.
