Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden has announced that National League football clubs will receive £10 million of funding as part of a partnership with The National Lottery.
The support will benefit the 66 clubs in the fifth and sixth tiers of English football, so that they can continue to play behind closed doors after the return of fans was paused due to rising infection rates.
Alongside the support for clubs, National Lottery players will also get a range of benefits – including free tickets once stadia are safe to reopen, grassroots football opportunities, and VIP experiences at Wembley Stadium.
The £10 million emergency support package, which will reach clubs quickly via the Football Association (FA), is in recognition of the important role National League clubs play in their local areas – being a source of pride to their towns, giving children opportunities to get active, and being at the heart of their communities.
