Andrew Bridgen questions the Government about funding opportunities for non-league football teams

6th September 2018

Andrew Bridgen highlights the excellent Coalville Town football club and asks the Sports Minister about funding opportunities to help non-league football teams improve their facilities and sports participation.

Coalville Town football club is an excellent non-league team offering opportunities to participate for men, women and a plethora of youth teams. What funding is available for Coalville Town and other non-league football teams in my constituency to continue to improve their facilities and their offering of sports participation to my communities?

Non-league football is incredibly important in the pyramid of football and many colleagues support their own constituency football clubs, and rightly so because often more vibrant football is played at community level. I would encourage my hon. Friend’s football club to look at Football Foundation funding and talk to Sport England about further investment in its facilities.
