Winstanley Warriors FC’s new sports hub in Wigan was recently opened thanks to a grant of £418,714 from the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund.
Delivered by the Football Foundation, the Fund provides grants for the building or refurbishment of grassroots facilities, such as changing pavilions, clubhouses, multi-use games areas and playing surfaces. The aim is to improve facilities for football and other sport in local communities to sustain or increase participation amongst children and adults, especially in areas of high deprivation. The minimum grant available from the Foundation for each facilities project is £10,000 and the maximum £500,000. The funding is available to Football clubs, professional clubs’ community trusts, multi-sport clubs, local authorities, all educational establishments, registered charitable organisations, not for profit companies limited by guarantee, industrial and provident societies and unincorporated not for profit organisations.
The next deadline for full applications is Friday 19 January 2018.
