Gareth Southgate announces early Christmas bonus for community sport

Fri 4th Nov 2011 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Gareth Southgate is fronting an awareness campaign to make sure grassroots football clubs know that leading up to the tricky Christmas period the Football Foundation is here to help.

The Former England and Premier League footballer is encouraging grassroots football clubs, local councils, sports associations – essentially anyone that owns community football facilities – to apply to the Foundation’s Build the Game scheme for smaller-scale facility projects.

These projects might be as simple as replacing a boiler, having changing rooms refurbished or even an artificial grass pitch resurfaced.

Under the Build the Game scheme, applicants can obtain a grant from the Foundation of up to £50,000 and up to 50% of the project’s cost.

Gareth Southgate, Head of Elite Development at The FA, said: “This is a golden opportunity for grassroots football clubs to shore up their facilities with the smaller-scale grants that the Foundation’s Builds the Game scheme offers.

“It is a fast and straightforward application process and a potential lifeline to clubs that need an extra bit of support – particularly when the bad weather kicks in.

“Anyone that is interested in applying should contact their County FA in the first instance for advice and assistance on how to apply.”

Any organisation that is interested in applying should contact their local County FA or visit the ‘Our Schemes’ section of the www.footballfoundation.org.uk. The Foundation is encouraging applications to come in by the end of November.

Contact details for all County FAs can be found on The FA’s website here: www.thefa.com/GetIntoFootball/CountyFA/CountyContacts.
