KICK-OFF: GROW THE GAME
The Foundation’s hugely popular
Grow the Game
(GtG) scheme
continues to fund the creation of new football teams at clubs
across the country.
Funded by The FA and Government (via Sport England), GtG
awards grants of up to £5,000 to grassroots clubs, that enable them
to increase participation and get their coaches qualified.
GtG perfectly compliments the Foundation’s core purpose of
building better local sports facilities – and opens our up national
game to all sections of society, as seen by the number of female,
Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME), and disabled teams that are
created through GtG funding.
