Australian Rules Football in the UK is currently a sport that is not funded. However, there are various opportunities to gain funding depending on your project and location. The below list is not exhaustive but may be a useful starting point to clubs and organisations looking to play Aussie Rules.
AFL Europe provide grants for events, participation programmes (e.g. Juniors, Womens) and for starting up new clubs. Contact email@example.com for more information.
FreeSport grants of up to £1500 are available and are distributed to approximately 150 different organisations across London, twice a year, for projects to run during the summer (July to October) and the winter (January to April). Application rounds open in April and September for four weeks and interested organisations are required to submit their proposals online via this site.
Sport England launched Sportivate in June 2011 as a four-year programme aimed at 14-25 year-olds but, due to its success, additional funding of £10m per year has been invested allowing the programme to run until March 2017 also extending its target age group so that 11-13 year-olds can also take part.
The programme gives 11-25 year-olds who are not particularly sporty access to six-to-eight weeks’ of free or subsidised coaching in a range of sports and once the coaching has finished they will be supported to continue playing sport.
Application process through your local Community Sports Partnership.
For support with funding applications for a project that your club is looking to run please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
