Changing Room

Changing Room - Pavilion - Club House Information

The quality of existing changing facilities throughout the country varies greatly. The FA has worked in recent years to introduce standards for the development of new changing facilities.

The FA advocates the use of modular build systems where a more flexible arrangement may be required either in terms of available funding or site location considerations. The following link gives Football Foundation funding information.

The Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund Scheme

It is recognised that many clubs and organisations do not have the resources to build new changing rooms. In adopting a flexible approach to the improvements of such facilities The FA aims to support organisations wishing to undertake modest facility improvements by utilising club resources, accessing small grant funding and generating in-club funding.

If you are intending to improve your football facilities (which may involve 3G football turf pitches, changing room pavilions / clubhouses, grass pitch improvements or better indoor / outdoor spaces) please contact Chris Hutchinson so that he can provide advice and guidance.

Following this, you may be asked to complete an Expression of Interest (EOI) form which can be found here.

Please note if you have already started work on your project (for example, building/construction has already begun), then it is unlikely that your project will be eligible for funding.
