City awarded Football Foundation Pitch Preparation Fund grant

There’s good news that we 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 grant can be used towards 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.

Robert Sullivan, Interim Chief Executive of the Football Foundation, said: “This is a vital grant to help Bath City FC get their pitch match-fit.”

The Football Foundation is a charity funded by the Premier League, The FA and the Government, through Sport England.
