  • Affiliation fees
  • League entry
  • First aid kits
  • Promotion and publicity
  • FA coaching courses

The costs of football kit and equipment can also be covered through a bespoke voucher.

Organisations eligible to apply will be:

  • Football Clubs
  • Youth Clubs with a football programme
  • Futsal Clubs
  • Community groups/centre/clubs
  • Charitable Organisations
  • Parish Councils and Local Authorities
  • Sports Associations and Multi-sports clubs
