Let's Go 2024!
Thanks to funding from the Premier League, The FA and Government, we're kicking off our biggest ever year of support for grassroots clubs across England.
Following a record-breaking year in 2023, delivering £76 million to improve grassroots facilities across England, we're gearing up to make 2024 even bigger.
To help ensure everyone has access to a great place to play, we have a full line-up of advice and funding opportunities – whether that be for new goalposts, floodlights to shine a light on brilliant players, a grass pitch that can be used all year round, or a community space that will be welcoming to all.
Making an impact
Robert Sullivan, CEO of the Football Foundation said: “This year, the Football Foundation will provide more great places to play than ever before.
“Good quality facilities not only have a transformative impact on physical and mental wellbeing, but also play an important role in bringing people together and strengthening local communities from the roots up.
“Thanks to the support we receive from our partners at the Premier League, The FA and Government, the Football Foundation is ready to deliver the facility improvements that every community needs and deserves.”
Over the next 12 months, we'll be launching exciting new programmes to ensure our support is reaching those who need it most, including:
- Opening the first Football Foundation PlayZone, which are small-sided pitches designed by and for the local communities in which they’re located.
- Delivering new state-of-the-art Hubs that enable people to play all-year round – whether it’s a wet and dark winter night or a sunny summer’s day.
- Harnessing the inspirational power of the Lionesses by providing women and girls with equal access to opportunities to play.
