Support for Grassroots Football Clubs, Leagues and Volunteers 

Active Derbyshire, Active Notts, Funding, News

The Utilita Football Re-booted initiative, in partnership with Team Grassroots, is making funding available to support grassroots football clubs, leagues and volunteers.

Utilita is a UK-based energy company that also sponsors several football clubs and competitions in the UK.

The Grassroots Fund is open to both clubs and leagues that are FA accredited and in need of financial assistance to make a big difference. Support will be tailored to meet the needs of each application, such as vouchers for building materials to fix up a club house, contributions towards the cost of tradespeople, gifts to show appreciation to volunteers, new kit, or support to recover from crime and vandalism.

Multiple applications can be made for grants or gifts.

Applications can be submitted at any time and funding decisions are usually made within 28 days. The fund is limited and early application is recommended.
