Clubs may qualify for “Small Business Grant”

It has come to our attention that football clubs may be eligible for a water payment holiday or “small business grant.”

If you pay business rates and at the beginning of March were claiming Small Business Rates Relief,  you can apply for a “Small Business Grant” of £10,000.  This is non-refundable and the application is a very simple process. You will need your business rates reference and go on to your local authority website, enter this reference number and the club’s bank details. The Grant is then paid direct.

If your club pays water bills, an application can be made by filling in a short form on the supplier’s website.
