Sports Capital Grant Consulting










Securing a Sports Capital Grant can be an essential pillar in the funding model used for capital projects for Sporting Organisations.

The State, via the department of Transport Tourism and Sports, uses the National Lottery Funds to support capital investment by both national Governing Bodies and Sports Clubs through the Sports Capital Programme. A call for funding is usually made each year and funds are allocated by County(to local and non-local projects). In 2016 €6.1m was allocated to 43 non-local projects and €34.9m was allocated to 824 local projects.

In the 2017 round, which closed for applications on 24th February 2017 2,179 sporting bodies have applied for €30m in available funds and allocations are expected to be made by Quarter 3 2017. A significant number of applications are usually deemed invalid and the balance compete for the scarce funds available with applications exceeding funds available, in 2017 for instance, by a factor of 9 to 1.
