About the Fund

01

The Premier League Defibrillator Fund will support the installation of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) and External Storage Cabinets at thousands of grassroots clubs and facilities currently without a device on site.

Rolled out across two phases, the Fund will see more than 2000 sites benefit from this investment with the first 1,000 units delivered in time for the start of the 2021/22 season and the second wave expected in September. Once installed, the AEDs will be accessible, if required, to an estimated 1.5m people that use these facilities per season.

Going forward, the Premier League is working with partners at The FA and Sport England to ensure that facilities funded by the Football Foundation incorporate this equipment in the future.

Are we eligible?

02

Phase One

The first phase of the Premier League Defibrillator Fund rollout will see AEDs provided to Football Foundation-funded facilities that are without a device on site.

Eligible sites will be contacted via email with further information no earlier than Wednesday 30 June 2021 with more information.

Each grant recipient will be required to:

  • Have at least one person successfully complete The FA Education’s free online Sudden Cardiac Arrest course
  • The facilities will be instructed on how to register their device with the emergency services so any member of the public can access the equipment, and given guidance on how to update their emergency action plan

 

Phase Two

Phase two will target grassroots clubs that own or operate their own facilities. 


The funding criteria is being developed and further information will be made available in early August 2021.
 

How do we apply?

03

Football Foundation funded sites without an AED on site identified for the first phase of the roll out will be contacted directly via email in the next few weeks. 

For the second phase of the rollout, information on how grassroots clubs who own their own facilities can apply for funding will be made available in early August.
