Youth Football Goalposts

The Foundation’s Youth Football Goalposts grants are available to schools to cover 50% towards the total cost of purchasing the new smaller goals recommended by The FA for Under-11 and Under-12 matches, which became mandatory for season 2013-14, with money provided by The FA and delivered by the Foundation.
The FA funds the Youth Football Goalposts scheme


The youth development review conducted by the FA is starting to be implemented. There are a number of leagues and clubs that have moved to the revised formats of youth football this season and The FA and Football Foundation have supported those clubs and leagues wanting to be proactive in moving to deliver 9 v 9 earlier than required by offering funding towards the purchase of goals. We will continue to support the schools that will now require funding to purchase goals for the 2014/15 season.

Important notice

The Scheme is open for applications from 26 August 2014 to 30 October 2014.

There is a limited budget for this scheme so the window for applications may close early, depending on demand for the scheme.

Note: No retrospective payments will be made. Please wait for confirmation of your grant before ordering and purchasing.

We are offering grants at 50% towards the cost of British Standard 16’ x 7’ goalposts, including delivery and VAT (if applicable).
