Retain the game Grants – £750 Grants to Support Adult male teams

RETAIN THE GAME

The Football Association and Football Foundation have launched ‘Retain the Game’, a new scheme aimed at supporting the retention of adult male teams. The scheme will provide grants of £750 to clubs with existing male teams to support the essential costs of pitch hire, training venues, First Aid courses and playing kit/equipment.

The application window is now open and is due to close on Wednesday 30 May at 5pm.

STEP 1 – ELIGIBILITY

Who is eligible?

Clubs that operate with two or more male teams  (U17-U21, Open Age and Vets) and

  • ✓ Hold the FA’s Adult Charter Standard Award
  • ✓ Operate in a Charter Standard Development or Charter Standard Community Club or
  • ✓ Adult Clubs that commit to become FA Adult Charter Standard within season 2018/19

Only one application can be submitted per club.

Priority applications

The following clubs will be prioritised for a Retain the Game grant:

  • ✓ Clubs with three or more adult male teams
  • ✓ Clubs that have been in existence for 5-9 seasons
  • ✓ Clubs that have been in existence for 10 of more seasons

Retain the Game

What do I need to do if our club is not Charter Standard?

In order to apply for Retain the Game, non-Charter Standard clubs will need to demonstrate they are willing to commit and work towards Charter Standard status. This requires clubs to contact their County FA and initiate the process prior to submitting an application. Charter Standard status will need to have been achieved by January 2019 to receive any further funding in 2019.

County FA contact details.

Why is the FA promoting Adult Charter Standard?

The FA’s research has demonstrated that Adult Charter Standard clubs are more sustainable and attract additional teams, players and volunteers. If clubs maintain this status they also receive an annual benefits package from the FA.

STEP 2 – ABOUT THE GRANT

What can the money be spent on?

The grant is designed to cover core costs including:

  • Facility hire (match day or training venue)
  • £100 Voucher for Nike Kit/Equipment (including First Aid) – to be redeemed through our bespoke portal
  • First Aid course

Grant Payment

The grant of £750 will be awarded split across two years. The grant instalment will vary depending on the status of the club.

The breakdown of funding is shown in the table below:

Type of club Year 1 – 18/19 season Year 2 – 19/20 season
Adult Charter Standard, Development or Community £500 £250
Non- Charter Standard £250 £500

Claims

Year 1

Clubs will be paid their Year 1 instalment upfront once they have met all the grant pre-conditions and accepted the grant.

Year 2

To release Year 2 payment clubs must meet the following conditions:

  • Clubs will be asked to provide their receipts as evidence of the eligible expenditure for the 18/19 season (Year 1)
  • Payment will be based on the retention of male teams within the club.

Your club must retain the following:

Club size Retention rate
2 male teams 100%
3-5 male teams 80%
6-9 male teams 70%
10+ male teams 65%

The Year 2 funding will not be provided if the above retention rates are not met.

Please note

  • All receipts provided must be dated after the grant offer date.
  • The Football Foundation will not reimburse payments made prior to the grant offer.

 

Kit or equipment voucher

Retain the Game equipment

Charter Standard clubs will be able to receive this voucher in the first year of the funding. Non-Charter Standard  clubs will be able to receive this in the second year of the funding, once they have achieved Charter Standard status.

(Please note the final equipment may differ from what is pictured.)

COMMUNITY PRIZE PROJECT

MULTIPLE PRIZES £500 TO £10,000

These worthy causes might not need £50,000 but still need a helping hand to continue their great work. From 11 regions of Great Britain, we’re looking to support projects like:

  • Local sports clubs
  • Educational facilities
  • Not for profit buildings
  • Other significant community facilities

With branches from the Scottish Isles to Penzance, we’re proud to be part of the communities where we live and work. That’s why we’re awarding £250,000 in building materials to good causes across Great Britain.

PHASE 1 – NOMINATIONS

9TH APRIL – 9TH MAY

Tell us about your project – It may be a new sports club changing room, a much needed play area for children or a facelift for a community building that’s seen better days. Whatever it is nominate your good cause via the website before 9th May. Just choose the category that’s right for your good cause, tell us why it should win, send us a picture or video…and that’s it.

PHASE 2 – SHORTLISTING

9TH MAY – 25TH MAY

Our judges will select their shortlist from all entries, reviewing each nomination against a set of criteria including:

  • How many people it will help in the local area
  • How it will continue to help people in the future
  • And how detailed your entry is

Our panel of judges will choose their favourites and these will then go to a public vote at the end of May.

PHASE 3 – VOTING

31ST MAY – 20TH JUNE

If you make the shortlist, you then need to spread the word as the more votes you get, the better. We choose the winners of Building Better Communities based on a combination of the judges’ scores and the public vote, so get as many people voting as possible.

PHASE 4 – JUDGING

21ST JUNE – 1ST JULY

With voting closed, our panel will judge each entry, considering both the entry information and the public voting. 50% of the overall score will come from the judges, and 50% from the public vote.

The judges will decide the Community Project winners who will receive between £500 and £10,000 in building materials, and the Top Community Prize of up to £50,000 that can be a combination of materials and labour. We’ll also award prizes to our Trade Heroes with a top prize of up to £50,000 in building materials up for grabs.

PHASE 5 – WINNERS

3RD JULY

After calculating all the scores, the winners of Building Better Communities will be announced in early July at a ceremony with a special celebrity host.

The winners can then use their prize to make a difference to good causes across the UK.
