Playing Fields Legacy Fund (PFLF)

The aim of the fund is to get more people, especially the young and disadvantaged, playing outdoor sport through more effective use of playing fields. PFLC want to use the power of sport to transform the lives of local communities.

PFLF will prioritise their support on revitalising playing fields in the most deprived areas of the country, particularly the inner cities. They will also consider providing funding to voluntary sector groups or sports clubs that run or manage community playing fields anywhere in the country.

In addition, PFLF can provide seed money to kick start new projects for grass pitches, artificial turf pitches (ATPs), and multi-use games areas (MUGAs). A grant from the Playing Fields Legacy Fund can help unlock funding from other sources such as the Football Foundation, Sport England and sports governing bodies.
