North Ferriby FC awarded funding to help their return to action
Saturday 26th of September 2020
Great news for football in the East Riding today as North Ferriby are celebrating receiving funding from the Premier League to help them with their costs toward providing for the safe return of supporters to their stadium.
The Matchday Support Fund grant of £2000 will help toward the cost of measures that have made their ground safer for the 2020/21 season given the challenges caused by COVID-19.
The Matchday Support Fund is managed by the Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF), which is financed by the Premier League and supports non-league and Women’s Football Pyramid clubs with the cost of improvements to their grounds.
The Matchday Support Fund follows the recent Pitch and Club Preparation Funds, which saw £8.7m in grants awarded by the Premier League, The FA and Government’s Football Foundation to prepare the country’s playing surfaces and facilities for the return of football.
