The scheme, which is funded by The FA and Sport England, and delivered by the Football Foundation, prioritises support for traditionally under-represented groups in grassroots football and last year’s edition gave approximately 16,000 people the chance to get involved by creating 884 female and 257 disability teams respectively.
Grow the Game grants of £1,500 will be made available for every new team female or disability team created, helping to relieve the financial burden on clubs by contributing towards FA coaching courses, first aid kits, league affiliation costs, referees’ fees, new kit or equipment.
Baroness Sue Campbell, Director of Women’s Football at The FA, said: “We want to ensure that women and girls across the country have opportunities to take part in football. Grow the Game has helped towards The FA’s strategic goal of doubling female participation in recent years and I hope to see even more teams being created and supported in 2020.”
The application window for Grow the Game is now open and closes on 31st May providing the budget has not been committed by this date.
Clubs seeking more information on the scheme should contact North Riding FA or visit the Football Foundation website.
