Football Funding for your Project! Football Stadium Improvement Fund (FSIF)

17th May 2016

Are you a football club looking to improve your facilities? Do you not have the funds available and therefore this is creating further obstacles? Look no further! Here at Synthetic Turf Management we know there are a number of elements to think about when deciding on your bespoke football pitch. There may also be some obstacles that you may endure during the installation. We are here to reassure you that football funding does not need to be one of them for your artificial turf football pitch! Why?...

Football Funding

In today’s blog football funding is the main theme, however please bare in mind that there are a number of different options for other sports facilities including MUGA’s, tennis courts, rugby pitches and much more! SAPCA published a list of the different funding options.

You may have read our blog about this published last month.

Football Stadium Improvement Fund

The Football Stadium Improvement Fund (FSIF) has just been used to install a multi-million-pound pitch being installed at Stockton Sixth Form College and Stockton Football Club which isn’t too far away from our Stokesley based offices. All of the project was helped financially from the FSIF.

“The FSIF helps to pay for crucial work that can be very costly to clubs but which is absolutely essential to allow our national game to function, whilst maintaining its unique depth and richness.”.

There are lots of synthetic football pitch funding options available

Football funding can help any football club in a number of different ways such as attracting new players into using your facility. Why? Funding for football increases the playing hours meaning more people want to use your pitch.
