Latest news from the Essex FA
The Football Association’s National Game Youth Council have re-launched a ‘Football Legacy Fund’ to create opportunities for youngsters aged 16-24 by helping to create football-related projects which need cash to get them off the ground.
The Football Legacy Fund, now in its second year, enables youngsters to take ownership of an idea in order to increase or sustain participation in football within their club, school, college, university or community.
An application form needs to be submitted detailing the aims and vision for the project, and how certain criteria have been met.
2013 is a massive year for The FA as they mark their 150-year anniversary, and the FA National Game Youth Council (NGYC) want to fund more projects, support more individuals and cultivate the next generation of footballing talent.
Successful applicants will be supported by a member, or members, of the NGYC, who will assist with the delivery of the project.
Benefits include between £200 and £400 in funding, an article on www.thefa.com showcasing the successful project and entry onto the Football Legacy Fund’s online ‘Wall of Fame’.
One selected project will additionally be presented with a memento at The FA Football Futures Recognition Awards in October 2013 at Wembley Stadium.
The 2013 application window closes at 5:00pm on Monday April 1. Please visit www.thefa.com to download your application form or email FootballLegacyFund@thefa.com for more information.
