If you are looking to develop new teams for the 2017/18 season in any of the highlighted groups below this workshop is for you!
The Football Foundation’s Grow the Game fund opened from 1st February 2017 for clubs/organisations/local authorities/pro clubs to create the following priority teams;
· Male teams – Under-14s to adult
· Female teams – Under-7s to adult
· Disability teams
Further information on the funding scheme can be found here http://www.footballfoundation.org.uk/funding-schemes/grow-the-game/ .
To support this we are running a Grow the Game workshop, giving a brief overview of the funding project, what has happened in previous years nationally and the criteria for the 17/18 season. This will then look to follow, the opportunity to discuss with your FDO’s about potential applications. The workshop will look to take place on;
· Thursday 23rd February 2017
· Marconi Social Club, Tydemans off Beehive Lane, Chelmsford, Essex, CM2 9FH
