What is the Grass Pitch Maintenance Fund?
The Grass Pitch Maintenance Fund is a £14m fund that provides eligible clubs and leagues with a tapered six-year grant to help them sustain pitches already at a 'good' level and enhance pitches that are either considered 'poor' or 'basic'.
The fund is a key part of the Football Foundation's Grass Pitch Improvement Programme - an ambition to deliver 20,000 quality grass pitches by 2030.
Please see below 4 quick questions regarding the Grass Pitch Improvement Fund.

Do you have 2 or more grass pitches at your site?
Does your club play within grassroots football outside of the National League System, ie. The Northern League?
Are you the Chairperson, Secretary or Treasurer of your Club?
