£39,000 has now been
invested into Sussex Football thanks to the Grow the Game grant. Clubs are now
on the hunt for the next generation of players thanks to grants of £1,500.
The scheme, which is funded by The FA and delivered by the Football Foundation, will enable clubs to create new teams and improve facilities.
The Grow the Game scheme sees grants of £1,500 awarded to community football clubs wishing to create new teams, especially amongst under-represented groups.
Since it was launched in 2010, the Grow the Game scheme has supported the growth of more than 14,000 teams.
This year, funding was made available for clubs looking to create new female and disability football teams, which can assist towards the costs of FA coaching courses, FA league affiliation costs, referees’ fees, first aid kits, football kit and equipment.
