Sporting Capital Fund

The £3m Sporting Capital Fund provides loan funding up to £150,000 to eligible organisations.

Our simple, repayable, unsecured loans will be tailored to meet the needs of each organisation and will be repayable over 3 to 5 years. If needed, a repayment holiday of up to 12 months may be available, giving projects time to generate sustainable revenue before starting to repay the loan.

We can invest in organisations that are looking to develop new projects, operations and revenue streams. Our funding is flexible and can be used for a variety of costs.

We can invest in a wide range of organisations from community sports clubs to social enterprises, charities and profit-with-purpose businesses that deliver sport and physical activity. Find out more on our eligibility criteria here.

The aim of the investment is to help organisations become more sustainable and deliver impact; you can use the investment for anything that helps you to do this. Every organisation’s needs will differ, but examples of how our loans could be used include:

  • Supporting the development of new or refurbishment of existing facilities
  • Buying kit and equipment to help deliver activities
  • Recruitment, training and deployment of staff and volunteers
  • Equipment to support business functions, including finance, project management and governance
  • Other operating costs, including working capital

Case studies of investments we have made and examples of types of projects we fund can be found here.

Grant funding, through the Access Reach Fund, may be available for organisations that need support to get ready to take on repayable investment. Find out more here.
