Expressions of Interest invited for Facility Developments
Cambridgeshire County FA is currently inviting Expressions of Interest (EOI) from grassroots football clubs and organisations looking to develop their facilities between now and 2020.
The English Football Association (The FA), via its investment into The Football Foundation, is looking to support projects that will make a difference to football clubs and the communities they serve. Demand is expected to be exceptionally high and will exceed the financial resource available. However, Cambridgeshire County FA, The FA, and The Football Foundation will continue to offer advice and support in relation to facility projects where it is considered to be of benefit to football and will try to identify any other relevant funding sources or seek to work with you to reduce overall project costs.
The first step is to complete and submit The FA’s online Football Facility Enquiry Form:
Even if you have previously completed a Football Facility Enquiry Form, make sure to submit this form to provide The FA with the most relevant and up to date information. All forms will be scored upon the window closing on Monday 24 April 2017.
Scoring comprises of a number of elements including The FA Charter Standard, the number of existing teams based on site, financial sustainability and proposed project requirements. Please ensure your project aims are realistic.
All projects will be contacted in May 2017, with The FA’s and County FA’s comments. Guidance and advice will be provided where appropriate. The higher scoring projects will be invited in for an informal presentation to be held on 16th May 2017. Priority projects will then be identified and will be asked to work up their applications with full backing and support from all parties.
