FOOTBALL in Peterborough received a boost as Hampton Community Sports Association (Active Hampton) were awarded a grant by the Premier League, The FA and Government’s Football Foundation.

The £500 grant from the Foundation’s Club Preparation Fund will help Hampton Community Sports Association (Active Hampton) to prepare their buildings to safely reopen in line with Government guidance around hygiene and social distancing, and The FA’s plans for a ‘phased return’ that were announced on 18 July.

The Club Preparation Fund follows the £7m of investment awarded to 2,900 organisations through last month’s Pitch Preparation Fund, also delivered by the Premier League, The FA and Government’s Football Foundation. This is enabling over 9,000 football pitches to be made match-fit and is benefiting over 33,000 football teams.

Speaking about their funding success, Chas Ryan, Chairman Hampton Community Sports Association, said:

“The Football Foundation grant will enable the HCSA team to put in place the measures required to enable the community to use the facility and significantly reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection.”

The Football Foundation is a charity funded by the Premier League, The FA and the Government, through Sport England.
