Grassroots sports clubs receive £40 million cash injection

0 0
Sport England has announced a £40 million boost into their Inspired Facilities Olympic and Paralympic legacy fund through to 2017 in a major boost to grassroots sports clubs across the county. 
The National Lottery boost will look to bring big improvements to local facilities, from new playing surfaces to floodlights and better changing rooms.
To date, 1,361 grassroots sports facilities have now benefited in the two years since Inspired Facilities was launched, with a total of £69.9 million invested. 
"A year on from the Olympics, it’s inspiring to see how our investment is transforming sporting facilities in hundreds of communities,” said Sport England chairman Nick Bitel.
"The great news for sports clubs across the country is that we’re putting an extra £40 million into Inspired Facilities so many more projects will benefit in the coming years.”
Minister for Sport Hugh Robertson believes that the £40 million funding boost will reinforce the commitment to create a tangible legacy from London 2012 one year on from the Olympic and Paralympic Games.  
"This £40 million injection of National Lottery funding will be a huge boost to local sports facilities across the country,” said Roberson.
"Coming a year on from hosting the London 2012 Games it demonstrates our commitment to a tangible and long lasting sports legacy. 
"The Inspired Facilities fund has been a massive success and by extending it to 2017 it will help encourage many more people to get involved in community sport.”
Bids will be accepted for the next round of Inspired Facilities funding from the 21st October 2013.
