As many of you know the Our Game Community Scheme partnered with Non League Day this year, and we were glad to see it was once again such a successful event. As we continue to build on the support we are making available to the Non League scene in the UK, we wanted to make you aware of an offer that can save your club thousands of pounds a year, but needs you to act quickly as you must submit your interest by 5pm on 29th April!! 

The Premier League has a Club Development Fund that is available to clubs at Steps 1 to 6 in the men’s game and at Steps 1 to 4 in the women’s game with which you can access up to £50k for off the pitch developments and up to £150k for on the pitch developments. (Please see Club Development Fund | Premier League Stadium Fund). We have created the following options for you to utilize this available funding: 

  • Apply for an off the pitch grant to install solar panels at your ground, generating your own electricity, whilst also helping to protect the environment!! The 10% contribution you would need to make per the fund rules can potentially be covered by various aspects of the reward scheme available with a FREE Our Game Club Membership. (Further government incentives and tax breaks may be available once the project scope has been determined based on your particular ground.) 
  • Apply for an off the pitch grant to improve the pitch / install a 3G pitch and make your club more of a community club / hub with the benefits that come with that. Again the required club contribution can be supported / boosted by the reward scheme available with an Our Game Club membership. 

If interested in either / both of these options, you must express your interest by 5pm on 29th April at Premier League Club Development Fund – Expression of Interest

Once you have expressed your interest, please then confirm back to us at [email protected] so that we can co-ordinate our part in this. 

If you are a club at Step 5 or 6 in the men’s game or at Steps 3 or 4 in the women’s game, you may also qualify for a free defibrillator (while funding remains available). Details on this further option can be found at Football Foundation | Grant.

For any questions on the above or to request further information, please feel free to contact us on 0208 166 5785 / [email protected]
