Grassroots football organisations across the UK can now apply for a share of £150,000 to support children under the age of 18 to play football. The funding is being made available through a partnership between Tesco’s Stronger Starts programme and the Sun Newspaper’s Footie for All Campaign.

150 grants of £1,000 are available that can be used for a variety of purposes, such as buying new equipment, improving facilities, or funding coaching courses.

The fund was introduced to help grassroots football organisations provide essential equipment and facilities for children to play football. It is also designed to help make football more accessible and affordable for children from all backgrounds.

Tesco Footie For All is managed by Groundwork who are working with greenspace Scotland to support applicants in Scotland.

The closing date for applications is 23.59 on the 29th October 2023.
