We are pleased to announce another round of Premier League funding to support District Associations. As outlined in the online application, this funding will be available to support both Boys’ and Girls’: Current U11 Districts; New U11 Districts; Current/New U10 Districts, with a view to continuing through to U11 next season.

This year is the penultimate year of this District funding, and as such, we will be asking Districts to consider future development, ways to improve sustainability and opportunities to increase activity locally/regionally. This funding is available to support representative teams (and their Associations) only. It is designed to enhance existing teams and support the creation of new Districts where possible whilst offering a National Competition pathway at 9v9.

Please note, only affiliated Associations are able to apply for this funding - you can apply by clicking the link here:

Once you click to submit your application you will not be able to login again, complete another application or print off a copy of your answers – so please ensure when you come to complete the application you can do it in one go, which will take approximately 40 - 60 minutes. Closing date for all applications is Saturday 25th November, with payments intending to be made to successful Districts prior to Christmas.
