The Football Foundation has expanded its Emergency Football Relief Fund in response to the recent storms affecting the North of England.

The Fund will now include North Riding and the regions covered by the Manchester County FA, Liverpool County FA and the Cheshire County FA.

Up to £750,000 has been made available through the Emergency Fund to rebuild and repair grassroots football pitches and facilities that have suffered storm damage and flooding, to enable football to continue across the affected regions as quickly as possible.

The funding is available for grassroots football, and clubs across all levels of The FA National League System (Step 1 to Step 7) that require assistance to make facilities safe and fit for purpose following damage by the recent storms, to allow football to continue.
