3G artificial grass football pitchDoes a 3G football pitch sounds more like a dream than a reality for your grassroots club?  Here LeisureTech offer some fundraising tips.

Raising money for your club

Assuming you’ve tried all the usual car boot sales, sponsored walks, fun days, exhibition matches, here are some other ways to raise cash:

– Every Waitrose branch donates £1000 per month to good cases locally.  You need to drum up support by getting shoppers to vote for you. See the community matters scheme
– Signup as a good cause on Easy Fundraising.  Get supporters to do their online shopping from your links and raise cash for your pitch renovation.  Read how it works
– Get in touch with Live4Soccer.  They offer an online clubshop to help you sell official merchandise and raise funds for your club.

Funding schemes

The Football Foundation’s facilities scheme offers grants of up to £500,000.  To be eligible, you must show that the improvement will:

-be of benefit to the local community.
-sustain or increase participation in all age groups and at all levels.
-help children and adults develop skills through regular participation in sport.

You must also prove you’ve been unable to raise enough money yourself.
