FUNDING AWARD TO PROVIDE NEW FACILITIES
Stamford Bridge Football Club are delighted to have been awarded funding to revamp our football facilities.
People living in Stamford Bridge are set to benefit from fresh investment into local football facilities. Stamford Bridge Football Club has been awarded a grant from the Premier League, The FA and Government's Football Foundation, to install new facilities.
The Football Foundation is the UK’s largest sports charity and exists to improve the experience of playing football for everyone, by championing fair access to quality facilities.
This grant will enable Stamford Bridge, who play at step 8 and give 250 senior and junior members chance to play in the York Minster Engineering League, York & District Youth and City of York Girls League much needed opportunity to improve their facilities.
Players will be able to enjoy new quality pitches, team and match officials changing rooms/showers, and match day catering facilities, which will represent a significant improvement on the existing pitches which are prone to cancellations and waterlogging due to the current high volume of matches played.
Stamford Bridge Football Club worked with the Football Foundation and the East Riding County FA to secure a £475,000 grant towards the project.
