The Football Foundation is the United Kingdom’s largest sports charity, investing £30m into improving the country's grassroots sports infrastructure each year with money provided by its funding partners: the Premier League, The FA and the Government (via Sport England).[2]


Launched in 2000, the Football Foundation awards grants to applicants that go towards building new local sports facilities, such as changing rooms, grass or all-weather football pitches or multi-use games areas for schools, local authority facilities or sports clubs.

The Foundation has also delivered large-scale sport CSR programmes,[3] including the Mayor of London: Sport Facilities Fund, on behalf of Mayor Boris Johnson and his Commissioner for Sport, Kate Hoey MP, as well as the multi-award winning Barclays Spaces for Sports programme that has created 200 new or refurbished community sports sites across the UK.
