Brading Town FC score with funding success 
There’s good news as Brading have been awarded a £1,500 Pitch Preparation Fund grant from the Premier League,
The FA and the Government’s Football Foundation. 

The Pitch Preparation Fund was set up in support of the game, which is currently facing unprecedented
challenges because of the COVID-19 outbreak. 
The Fund is providing grants to clubs that have lost out on normal revenue streams during this difficult period. 
The funding will enable the Club, to prepare their football pitches so that they are match-fit for when it
is safe to play football again, following Government advice. 

They can use their grant towards to help pay for the cost of materials, work such as verti-draining,
chain harrowing, rolling, over-seeding, fertilising, weed-killing, and routine preparatory work such as grass cutting
 and the setting out and line-marking of pitches. Clubs and other organisations are also being given
 access to the Football Foundation Groundskeeping Community. 
This is a free online resource the Foundation developed with The FA and the Grounds Management Association,
containing advice and guidance. “The Premier League, The FA and Government’s Football Foundation exists to
help provide quality infrastructure at the lower-levels of the game. 

Pitch Preparation Fund grants like this one are giving a helping hand to clubs
across the country to get their playing surfaces ready for when the game is allowed to begin
again following government advice.” The Football Foundation is a charity funded by the Premier League,
The FA and the Government, through Sport England.


In 2021 Brading Town Football Club
will celebrate 150 years.

It is one of the oldest football clubs
in the World

To celebrate this remarkable
achievement it is planned to
hold a number of events.
