After a summer of anticipation, the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport announced the 2018 Sports Capital Programme this morning. The Sports Capital Programme aims to foster an integrated and planned approach to developing sports and physical recreation facilities throughout the country.
Applications will be accepted from Friday September 7th and will close on Friday October 19th. The last chance to register through the online platform OSCAR will be 5pm on Friday October 5th.
Speaking today, Minister Griffin explained that, “In particular, we are introducing some significant changes in our assessment methodology to ensure that we minimise the number of invalid applications. We will also give even greater priority to applications from disadvantaged areas and projects that promote the sharing of sports facilities with other clubs and the wider community.”
2into3 work with sporting bodies and clubs on such projects which best suit their specific situations. In 2017, 2into3 were responsible for assisting four clubs achieve their Sports Capital grant, which totalled €378,000 in allocated funding. We will work on a maximum of 10 applications this year.
To assist clubs with their applications, 2into3 will hit the road with Sports for Business holding Sports Capital Masterclasses in Cork, Athlone and Dublin. For more information click here.
