£1.5m of funding, designed specifically for grassroots clubs to start new teams and qualify more coaches to cater for under-represented groups, is set to open for applications

The Grow the Game scheme is designed to increase participation in our national game by helping clubs with the costs associated with creating new teams, which will give opportunities to those who have limited options to join a team.

Funded by the Premier League and The FA, Grow the Game is delivered by the Football Foundation, the nation’s largest sports charity.

The fund will boost playing opportunities for three specific sections of society for whom the opportunities to play football have always been traditionally limited. These are:

  • Women and Girls;
  • Disabled Players;
  • Male teams of Under-14s-and-upwards.

Applications are only being accepted for teams within these target groups providing they meet the basic eligibility criteria.

£1,500 is available for each new team that a club creates with the grants, the amount is aimed at covering the costs incurred for league entry, referees’ fees, first aid kits, FA coaching courses, football strips and more.

The application window for Grow the Game applications will open on Monday 1 February 2016 and close on Thursday 10 March 2016. For clubs seeking more information on Grow the Game should contact, Steven Wade, NRCFA County Development Manager, on 01642 717775, or, via email or visit
