We are delighted to have been awarded funding to help us return to action!
It's great news for football in the Hemel area as we are celebrating receiving funding from the Premier League to help us prepare for the restart of football and safe return of supporters to Vauxhall Road.
The Matchday Support Fund grant will help us put in place measures that will make our ground safer for the 2020/21 season given the challenges caused by COVID-19.
The Matchday Support Fund is managed by the Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF), which is financed by the Premier League and supports non-league and Women’s Football Pyramid clubs with the cost of improvements to their grounds.
The Matchday Support Fund follows the recent Pitch and Club Preparation Funds, which saw £8.7m in grants awarded by the Premier League, The FA and Government’s Football Foundation to prepare the country’s playing surfaces and facilities for the return of football.
