The FA FACILITIES & INVESTMENT TEAM
At a national level, The FA has a positive and productive relationship across the funding partners and with the Football Foundation, and to oversee this work they employ a small team of national strategy and project managers.
The FA Facilities and Investment Team is responsible for the creation of new strategies, the development of new projects, the production of guidance, the management of The FA’s interests in the Football Foundation, and the oversight, training and development of the County FA Facility Investment Lead network.
FOOTBALL STADIA IMPROVEMENT FUND
Funded by the Premier League, the Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF) awards capital grants to EFL, National League, Women's Pyramid and Welsh Premier League down to the lower levels of the FA National League System.
They are designed to improve stadium safety and enable clubs to satisfy The FA’s ground grading requirements.
From installing new floodlights, upgrading playing surfaces to developing all-seated stands, the goal is to improve the
match-day experience of players, officials and spectators.
