Extra Time Fund
Hertfordshire Football Association is pleased to announce details of two funding programmes aimed at helping clubs retain existing teams and develop new ones.
The Extra Time Fund can offer up to £750 per team and is a fantastic opportunity to provide competitive football for new players or to ensure current players can continue to compete.
The development fund can assist clubs looking to add completely new teams, while the retention fund can provide support for those that demonstrate a risk of existing teams disbanding due to financial reasons.
Applications will be considered based on the following criteria:
|Developing new teams||Retention of teams|
|Who's it for?||Clubs who are developing a new team during season 2018/19. This team must qualify as ‘new activity’ (i.e. shows an increase in affiliation numbers and is a completely new team from 2018/19).||To support clubs who can clearly demonstrate a team is at significant risk of disbanding due to financial reasons.|
|What can be funded?||
