enterprising clubs

We offer support to local clubs to become Enterprising Football Clubs by helping committees to improve skills and capacity as they grow and develop their facilities.

Football clubs serve the community, bringing people together and there are benefits to becoming a social enterprise. Becoming vibrant, visible and viable hubs for their communities can open up a whole different market, one that doesn't engage with at the moment.

Growth in clubs, community engagement and creating welcoming places attracts new members and helps to retain existing ones. Becoming a hub of the community with an improved social life of the club and by adopting new technology, clubs can introduce new revenue streams, helping them become more sustainable.

 We encourage clubs to develop better relationships within their communities and community partners, leading to more players, customers, partners and local people becoming involved. To work with diverse groups across society to develop an even more inclusive and welcoming sport which is relevant to people's lives. To broaden their appeal and become hubs for their communities and to promote what they are doing.

Grow your Ground supports clubs to grow their club, improve their environment, raise their profile and to become a hub for the community.
