Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund

The Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund provides grants for building or refurbishing grassroots facilities, such as changing pavilions and playing surfaces for community benefit, with money provided by the Premier League, The FA and the Government (via Sport England) and delivered by the Foundation.

Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund Small Grants Scheme 

The Premier League and The FA Facilities Fund Small Grants Scheme awards grants of up to £10,000 for the provision of capital items, or to refurbish/improve existing facilities.


Last year, the Respect equipment scheme helped to expose more than 500 clubs, 7,100 teams and 110,000 players to the Respect message. This year, we’re looking to go even further. Clubs, leagues and County FAs are able to apply for a voucher which offers them a 50% discount on Respect packs while stocks last.

Stay in the Game

The Football Association’s Stay in the Game scheme, formerly known as Retain the Game, is aimed at supporting the retention of adult male teams. The scheme provides grants of £750 to clubs with existing male teams to support the essential costs of pitch hire, training venues, and affiliation fees.
