About the Sports Club Resilience Fund

The Sports Club Resilience Fund has been made available to ensure Sports Clubs can continue to deliver sporting opportunities at a local level. The grant scheme is designed primarily to support sporting activity and clubs who have experienced a negative financial impact due to Covid-19. This may include a reduction in membership income due to Covid-19, loss of income or additional costs associated with the cancellation or rescheduling of events, the purchase of equipment necessary for Covid-19 compliance and safety and other financial hardships caused by Covid-19.

Loss of income from ancillary activities such as hospitality or other non-sporting commercial activity such as clubhouse bars cannot be considered.
