Sportsmatch funding still available for grassroots sport
Posted: Thu, 20 Sep 2012 15:20
Sportsmatch uses money from Sport England to encourage private sponsorship of grassroots community sport, and can award from between £1,000 to £100,000 to match funding from up to five sponsors.
The Sportsmatch programme is accepting applications to help organisations deliver new community projects for adults and young people aged 14 and over.
So if you your club has already obtained or is in the process of securing sponsorship from commercial companies, charitable trusts or private individuals, then Sportsmatch could be for you.
Sportsmatch is looking to fund a wide range of projects including:
- community sports coaching projects
- setting up new sports teams
- additional sports equipment
- sports development within existing clubs
- events which increase participation.
More information on Sportsmatch and the application process can be found online at the Sport England website.
Your idea or project could really help to shape the Olympic and Paralympic legacy over the coming years and decades, so we urge you to take full advantage of the opportunity that the Sportsmatch programme offers.
