Funding for Football Pitches

Together with our exclusive partners FieldTurf, S&C Slatter have built over 150 artificial turf football pitches, for clients including Queen’s Park Rangers, Swindon Town FC and Hart District Council.

Over the years, a number of clients have partly or wholly funded their new pitch – or pitch refurbishment – through grant funding or finance.

What funding is available for a 3G Football pitch?

Perhaps the most well known fund available for football pitch construction projects comes from the Football Foundation.

The Football Foundation is the Premier League, The FA and Department for Culture, Media and Sport’s charity which provides grassroots football grants across the country.

As well as regular funding cycles for small scale grants, The Football Foundation’s AGP Framework funds new or refurbished football facilities where existing provision for grassroots football is low.

As existing suppliers, in partnership with FieldTurf, to the Football Foundation’s AGP Framework, we’ve delivered new 3G Football Pitches for Swindon Town FC, Racing Club Warwick and South Bromsgrove High through the scheme.

Find out more about the Football Foundation funding that might be available to you on their website.

Financing for football pitches

Through our exclusive partnership with Buckingham Leasing, eligible clients can fund, design, construct and maintain a new artificial, natural or hybrid turf football facility through one dedicated point of contact.

Our three finance options allow schools, universities, leisure centres, elite clubs and other organisations (subject to approval) to spread the cost of their new facility over time.

With competitive interest rates, fixed repayments, no-deposit and deferred payment options, you may be able to finance a new 3G Pitch for as little as £5,000 a month over 7 years.

The John Madejski Academy funded the refurbishment of their FIFA Quality 3G Football Pitch through a sports operating lease. By hiring the pitch out outside of school hours, the revenue generated helps the pitch to pay for itself! Read the case study.
