East riding fa launch funding scheme for new 11-aside adult teams.
The East Riding County FA is pleased to announce that for the fifth consecutive season we are delivering a funding scheme specifically for the creation of new 11-a-side adult teams.
Grants Of Worth Nearly £200 Are Now Available For The Set Up Of New Sides.
More Teams! More Football! aims to increase participation in the adult game by providing the critical support needed to join a league, affiliate to the County FA and become an FA Charter Standard football club. Starting a new team can sometimes seem daunting but we aim to provide you with as much support as possible. If you require help with affiliation or help with setting up a new club then please use our helpful 'how to guides'
In a change to previous seasons teams will be awarded the funding by the league they wish to join. Using the leagues intelligence we aim to ensure that the clubs who are genuinely 'new' receive the help and support required to help kick start their 2019 / 2020 season.
If a club is successful in obtaining the funding they will be awarded a grant of nearly £200. This is broken down to:
- Affiliation and County Cup entry fee | £127 (approx)
- A place on an FA Level One Introduction to First Aid course | £25
- First Aid kit | £25
- Two Nike footballs | £20
To qualify for the funding teams must:
- Be a brand new team
- Commit to becoming an FA Charter Standard club
- Commit to sending a team official to an FA Level One Introduction to First Aid course
- Register to play in one of the following East Riding FA adult affiliated leagues:
MKM Hull Sunday Mens League, East Riding County League, Hull and District Veterans League, Driffield and District Football League and East Riding Women's League.
If a club would like to apply for More Teams! More Football! funding they must first approach to the league to see if there is a place for them. Once this has been established the club must then be able to demonstrate that they are a genuinely new club and fit the criteria for being awarded the funding. Once the funding has been granted the club will then be referred to the County FA so that a reimbursement plan can be agreed between the club and County FA.
A club will only be reimbursed once it has affiliated, paid its league entry fee and sent a team official to the designated FA Level One Introduction to First Aid course.
To apply for the funding please contact your league secretary or alternatively contact Clubs and Participation Development Officer Chris Johnson either 01482 221158 or firstname.lastname@example.org
