Support for Clubs

 

Following recent meetings of the Management Committee the League has looked to address how we might assist clubs in the current uncertain climate following the lockdown in the fight against the coronavirus.

We are announcing the League fees for next season now which will give clubs some support at this time by accessing the small financial reserves which the League has built up as a buffer for reinvestment in the League and for support in times of crisis.

 

FOR THE COMING 2020/21 SEASON NO CLUB WHICH TOOK PART IN THE LEAGUE DURING THE SEASON 2019/20 WILL PAY ANY LEAGUE SUBSCRIPTION FEE.

 

This will include the Associate Membership fee of £40.00 which would normally be payable by clubs playing in just the Veterans Cup.

Cup fees will continue to be payable for each cup entry, we fully intend to play all of the 2019/20 season cups to a finish in the early weeks of the new season and details of these Cup finals will be communicated as soon as they can be arranged.

 

In addition to the above there are a number of possible avenues that Clubs may want to explore for additional funding to support your Club at this time:

Sport England £195m package of grants

Sport England Community Emergency Fund

Birmingham County FA Funding & Support during Covid-19
