Sporting Club Thamesmead has been built with funding from the charity’s own reserves along with support from The Football Foundation, FIFA, UEFA, the Rank Foundation and the London Marathon Trust.
To gain funding for the pavilion, Trust Thamesmead worked in partnership with the London FA to secure a £769,112 grant from the Football Foundation which is funded by the Premier League, The FA and the Government (via Sport England). Additional funding for the club’s new floodlit 3G AGP and top-of-the-range floodlit MUGA came from the Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF), in the shape of a £75,000 grant, in order to create a much safer environment for players throughout the year.
The project has also received £200,000 funding from The FA, as part of their capital allocation within the Whole Sport Plan agreed with Sport England. This is awarded to support the sustainability of community clubs and create more opportunities to participate in sport within a high quality environment.
In addition Trust Thamesmead’s Board allocated £2.986 million from its limited capital with additional funding coming from:
- The London Marathon Trust (£150,000)
- FIFA (£55,000)
- UEFA (£74,000) and Rank (£5,000)
