Mayor Boris Johnson has urged local sports clubs to apply for funding from his Sports Facilities Fund and help boost sports participation.
The fund is part of the Mayor’s Sports Legacy Programme which aims to boost opportunities for Londoners to participate in sporting activity as part of London’s Olympic legacy.
City Hall says over £16 million has already been invested, benefitting 250,000 Londoners, and that a further £6 million will be available to not-for-profit organisations over the next two years.
Applications can be made for up to £100,000 to cover up to a maximum of 60 per cent of the total project cost.
Mayor Johnson said: “I am urging groups to come forward and take advantage of this fantastic funding opportunity.”
Kate Hoey MP, the Mayor of London’s Commissioner for Sport, added: “The Mayor’s Sports Facilities Fund is making a tangible difference towards improving grassroots sports provision and I would like to thank and congratulate everyone involved in the project to date.”
Organisations can find out more about the Mayor of London’s Sports Facilities Fund and apply online via the Football Foundation website. Expressions of interest need to be made by 4 October 2013.
