McDonalds have made £75,000 available through their Kickstart grant scheme, supporting community football. Football clubs applying need to be recognised by the FA, and have at least one team at or below junior level (U18).
They can apply for one-off grants of between £500 to £2500 for things like:
– club facilities, grounds-keeping tools, training courses, pitch hire, mini-vans and washing machines
The scheme will not fund:
– advertising and promotions, fundraisers, kit/team wear, club trips/tours, holiday training camps and club personnel wages/expenses e.g. fuel.
There are three more application rounds this year – the next closes on 30 June. The McApplication form is on the website via the link below:
