Former Norwich City FC Manager, Nigel Worthington, will officially open Holt Playing Field Association’s new changing room pavilion on Saturday 19 March. The project was made possible thanks to a £99,983 grant from the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund, which provides grants towards developing new or refurbished grassroots football facilities. The development also received £50,000 from the Premier League, through the Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF), the largest funders of non-league football in the country.

Holt Playing Field Association have been able to extend and refurbish the previous pavilion, which were too small for the number of clubs using it. The development includes two changing rooms, an officials’ changing room, a large kitchen, and storage space and spectator toilet facilities.

Holt Playing Field Association worked in partnership with Norfolk County FA to secure the £99,983 grant from the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund. Since 2000 the Football Foundation Funding Partners’ investment has provided 175 grants worth £7m towards grassroots sports projects worth over £15.7m across the whole of Norfolk.

Other funding is coming from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities Fund, the Environment Protection Agency, North Norfolk District Council, Holt Playing Fields Association and additional fundraising.

Founded in 2000 the Football Foundation is the largest sports charity in the UK funded by the Premier League, The FA and Government, via Sport England. It funds the development of new and refurbished grassroots sports facilities in order to improve the quality and experience of playing sport at the grassroots level. Since it was launched in 2000, the Foundation has awarded around 14,000 grants worth more than £546m towards improving grassroots sport, which it has used to attract additional partnership funding of over £773m – over £1.3bn of investment into the grassroots game.
