Develop Your Club
Delivered by The Football Foundation, the Grow the Game Scheme provides grants of up to £1,500 for the creation of new football teams and coaching qualifications, with money provided by The FA.
The Grow the Game scheme is designed to increase participation in our national game by helping clubs with the costs associated with creating new teams, which will give opportunities to those who have limited options to join a team. The grants aim to lessen the burden of costs associated with starting new teams such as FA coaching courses, league affiliation costs, kit and equipment, referees’ fees and first aid kits.
Grow the Game supports football’s diversity and is designed to be inclusive of players from different genders, ethnic backgrounds, faiths, ages, sexual orientations and those with disabilities – and applications from all of these groups are encouraged.
Applications are usually open from February through until April.
