Application Process

There are three main steps to completing the application:

  • Discuss your project with your County Football Association and your FA Regional Facilities and Investment Manager, and fill in an FA Facilities Enquiry Form (FEF) if required
  • Apply by submitting the application form

Important Dates

There are no set deadlines for applications to be received, but the funding window is planned to allow projects to start at the beginning of the football season. A decision should be expected within nine weeks.
