Grassroots projects across Wales to receive additional £4million

As part of the continued drive to get more people active, the UK Government, the Football Association of Wales and the Cymru Football Foundation have kicked off the year by announcing 64 projects across Wales are benefitting from a share of £4 million.

From Bangor to Carmarthen, 64 projects will receive funding for everything from changing rooms and pavilions, to a state of the art 3G football turf and brand new floodlights. Work is already underway on 63 of these projects, with the final one to commence from spring.

The projects announced today will benefit from £4 million from the UK Government in 2023/24, with £300,000 already allocated from next year’s overall budget.

Since 2021, the Cymru Football Foundation and UK Government has delivered 60 facility projects across Wales through £2.5 million of funding, with at least 50 per cent of investment to be spent in the most deprived and inactive local authorities.

“This vital funding will allow the Cymru Football Foundation to invest and support so many across Wales as we deliver the Football Association of Wales’s commitment to provide outstanding football facilities that enrich communities.

“Thank you to UK Government for their continued support as we continue to provide inspirational fit-for-future facilities across the country.”
