Oxfordshire FA plays a key role in supporting and guiding applicants through the process of developing a project as well as identifying available funding to bring it to life.
We recognise the importance of high quality facilities for the game within the County and are working in partnership with our football family, Local Authorities, The FA, Sport England and other National Governing Bodies to develop and protect our existing stock as well as understand the demand for future provision.
Expressions of Interest
The FA now runs an online expression of interest form for clubs or organisations wishing to apply for funding for new facilities, where clubs can outline their project, end users and other supporting materials. Access the form here
Funding for facilities is constantly changing, but we aim to keep you up to date with the main funding bodies that can support the development of any facility project. Our comprehensive guide to available funding opportunities can found on our funding page here
