  • The replacement of unsafe goalposts
  • Portable floodlights; storage containers

The Football Foundation strongly recommends that applicants use the pre-application advice offered on our behalf by The FA and the network of County FAs around England. This will normally involve completing the FA's Football Facilities Enquiry Form (FEF) first, which will help The FA to learn more about your project and determine the best way to support you and your organisation.
