Groundmatch Grants – Rugby Football Foundation

The Groundmatch Scheme provides easy-to-access grant funding for capital projects which contribute to the recruitment and retention of community rugby players. A list of projects which qualify for a grant (‘Qualifying Projects’) is given in the Guidance Notes, but the list is not exhaustive. Clubs at level 5 and below can apply for between £1,500 and £5,000 on a matched £ for £ basis.

Completed applications are considered on a rolling basis throughout the year. In order for an application to be considered the application form must be fully completed and submitted with all the required paperwork to the RFF Administrator. Clubs may only apply for one grant per project and are eligible for only £5,000 in a 24 month period. The 24 months are calculated from the date of the last payment of any previous award.

The RFF aspires to turnaround Groundmatch Grants in eight weeks from receipt of a complete application.
