2020 Club Resilience Fund Update
A Resilience Fund of up to €15 million will be made available from the Government to support Sports Clubs who find themselves in need of assistance to avoid closing.
The grant scheme is designed to support sporting activity only. These funds are not aimed to replace lost income from ancillary activities such as hospitality, sub-letting facilities or other non-sporting commercial activity.
Athletics Ireland will be administering this scheme on behalf of our Clubs and Affiliated Bodies and we will share details of the application in the coming days.
We note that this fund is open to all Athletics Ireland affiliated Clubs and Bodies who are in severe financial distress due to the impact of Covid 19 and may have to consider closing. We also note that a rigorous application process will be circulated in the coming days for any Clubs needing to apply for these funds.
