Investment will boost the retention of adult male footballers The Secretary of Beer Albion F.C. says all involved with providing adult soccer are grateful for the investment from The FA that has helped secured the club’s long-term future.
Beer Albion F.C. has been awarded a grant from The FA’s Stay in the Game scheme to help aid the club’s retention of its adult male players, giving them the financial support to cover the costs incurred by grassroots clubs.
The Stay in the Game scheme is funded by The FA and delivered by the Football Foundation, with grants of £750 awarded to existing clubs in order to boost financial sustainability and allow clubs to continue offering playing opportunities in organised football. The grants can be used towards match day and training facility hire and league affiliation costs as well as covering match day subs for individuals that aren’t able to afford their regular match fees.
Secretary, Roger Hoare, said: Beer Albion F.C. are extremely grateful to the Football Foundation for their help in sustaining adult football in the East Devon village.

This push to sustain adult male teams follows the recent Grow the Game funding scheme for 2019, which made £1.5 million available for grassroots clubs looking to create new women and girls or disability football teams.As well as Grow the Game, the Football Foundation uses investment from the Premier League, The FA and the Government, through Sport England,to provide enhanced sporting facilities across the country. Since 2000, the Foundation has supported over 16,500 grassroots projects worth more than £1.5bn.
