The Premier League has launched a fund to help clubs in non-league, women’s football and the Welsh Premier League prepare for the safe return of fans to their grounds.

The Matchday Support Fund will provide grants of between £1,000 and £20,000 to help clubs put measures in place to make grounds safer for the 2020/21 season for both stadiums and supporters.

  • keeping facilities and equipment clean
  • maintaining social distancing and avoiding congestion
  • promoting good hygiene
  • implementing advance ticketing systems.

The Fund will be managed by the Football Stadia Improvement Fund to help National League System clubs in steps 1-6, the Welsh Premier League and women’s clubs in Tiers 1-5.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on 16th September 2020.
