Pitch Preparation Fund open for football

A new £9.56m Pitch Preparation Fund is open for applications until 9am on Monday 25 May.

The Football Foundation’s grants of up to £5,000 (depending on criteria) are for clubs and communities to get their natural and artificial pitches prepared for when the government permits football to be played again.

Any pitch work that has been completed since The FA suspended football on 16 March 2020 is eligible to be funded.
