Following the success of The Community Shield Distribution Committee’s £1966 grants to community clubs which marked the anniversary of England’s World Cup win, The FA have decided to replicate the programme for 2017.
Grants of £2,500 will be awarded to two Oxfordshire FA affiliated clubs. We are therefore looking for nominations from clubs from grassroots to Conference level who play an outstanding role in the community to receive one of two grants.
To be eligible for the grant, we ask that clubs use the funding to:
• Create an outreach programme for their club to engage with the wider community e.g. schools, organised youth groups.
• Engage with groups who are typically hard to reach and provide recreational football opportunities.
• Increase their community presence.
If you are interested in applying for The Community Shield Distribution Fund on behalf of your club then please click below and complete the online form.
Deadline for entries will be 12pm on Wednesday 10th May with the two success clubs announced on the 12th May 2017.
