The action invites local sports clubs with grassroots work to apply for funds with a maximum grant of up to £ 1,000, although the amount has increased to £ 5,000 in 2020.

Around £ 515k in funding has been delivered to clubs and sports programs since the launch of the initiative promoted by Flutter in 2008.
“Local sports clubs play a key role in the UK and Ireland. They promote good health and well-being and act as an essential point for communities to come together and support each other ”, said Sue Hammett, representative of Flutter.
Hammett further stated that “in 2020, at a time when this role becomes even more vital, many suffered financially. And, we are proud to contribute to grassroots sports through Cash4Clubs and help keep these clubs working in the medium to long term ”.
