Maria Miller, MP for Basingstoke has welcomed Premier League and the FA Facilities Fund’s grant for local club.

Chineham Tigers FC has been awarded a grant of £500 to replace their unsafe goal posts 

Maria said “I welcome this funding to improve football facilities for young local residents. Availability of good sporting facilities can encourage participation, which in turn helps children and adults to develop their physical and mental well-being. I encourage other eligible local organisation to apply for funding.”

The Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund is available to football clubs, schools, councils and local sports associations. It is focused on supporting the development of new or refurbished local football facilities, improving the experience of playing the national game at the lowest levels, and helping to increase participation in football across the country.
