Shropshire County FA has a key role to support any facilities project by guiding you through the funding that is available and most appropriate through either the Football Foundation, Sport England or Local Authorities.

Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund

We are pleased to announce that the Football Foundation’s funding partners - the Premier League, The FA and the Government (through Sport England) will be investing £102 million over the next three years into a new fund to be managed by the Football Foundation.

This new Fund will be called the “Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund” and will replace the previous Football Foundation Grass Roots Facilities Fund. The Fund will be managed by the Football Foundation and will be open to football clubs, schools, councils and local sports associations to support the development of new or refurbished local football facilities.

Applications that are already within the system will continue to be processed as normal.

The Foundation will start to accept applications and EOIs for the new Fund with effect from Monday 20 January 2014.In the meantime applicants can register their interest by submitting a Registration of Interest Form, which can be found at:   http://county-fa-eoi.thefa.me.uk/?cfa=42

Stadia Improvement Fund applications will continue to be accepted as normal – visit www.fsif.co.uk for more details.
