Power Up Your Grass Pitch

News/Updates:Funding Available to improve grass Football pitches. Launched by the Premier League, the FA, and the Football Foundation, the initiative aims to improve over 20,000 pitches by 2030. To support the campaign, the Football Foundation has developed an app called ‘PitchPower’. This online tool empowers community football clubs and organisations to conduct their own grass pitch inspections, providing fast and accurate data which is less time-intensive and more efficient than in-person inspections. 
Who can apply?Community football clubs in England can apply for funding to improve their pitches. Applicants will need to complete a PitchPower inspection within the last 12 months for all their pitches before they can apply.
Grant amount:Funding falls into two categories – enhance or sustain. Your PitchPower pitch inspection (a requirement of the grant) will provide you with a Performace Quality Standard (PQS) per pitch – which will help us decide how much funding you’ll be eligible for – and a list of maintenance
recommendations which you’ll need to carry out as part of your grant award. Grants are paid annually for six years but tapered down during that time. The amounts below show the grant values for the first year at 100% funding. All grant values include VAT.
