The Sports Capital and Equipment Programme is the primary vehicle for Government funding support for the development of sports and physical recreation facilities and the purchase of non-personal sports equipment throughout the country.
As part of the recently announced Facility Investment Vision and Strategy for Irish Football by the FAI, the association is looking to support clubs to access all available current funding with a host of webinars designed to support all potential applicants.
How the facilities department can support you
In order to provide additional assistance to Leagues, Clubs, and Affiliates involved in the Sports Capital and Equipment Programme process, the FAI's Facility Development Department is planning to host an Educational Webinar series when the sports capital scheme is open and available for applications. These webinars will aim to offer support and guidance to clubs as they prepare their SCEP applications.
The Webinar Series will be run in conjunction with sports capital application scheme to be a valuable resource for all prospective applicants, offering insights into navigating the Sports Capital and Equipment Programme process effectively. It is strongly recommended that all clubs, leagues, and affiliates participate in these webinars to gain a better understanding of the benefits provided by this funding scheme.
