How to apply for a £750 grant for your team

The window is now open for teams to apply for up to £750 from the Berks & Bucks FA Football Fund with the key focus on setting up new teams.

It is the second time the County FA have been able to run the funding window – which is open until 30th June – and last year they awarded grants to the total of £13,500.

A post on the County FA website states: “Our  BBFA Football Fund is available for any existing FA Charter Standard Club wishing to develop NEW teams for season 2017/18. This year’s emphasis is supporting male U14-U18, adult male, adult female & disability teams.”
