Kent FA is pleased to launch a new funding scheme to support the growth and retention of 11v11 male football teams.

What is the funding for?

The fund cannot be used towards existing teams already part of an FA Charter Standard Club.

The deadline for applications is 1 March 2018.

How much is the funding?
Successful applicants will receive a grant of £750 per team. Clubs may be required to contribute some elements of cost towards to the new teams.
