The UEFA EURO 2020 is coming to London!
As part of the Mayor’s strategy for sport and social integration, the Mayor of London UEFA EURO 2020 Grants Programme will see up to £525,000 invested into community events and projects around our city.
The aim of the programme is for all Londoners to have the chance to engage with UEFA EURO 2020 by creating positive, meaningful opportunities for local communities across the capital. Successful grant applications will enrich and bring communities together, tackle prejudices, improve health and break down barriers.
The Programme is separated into three strands:
- The Celebrate As One Fund
This fund will invest in one-off community events that celebrate UEFA EURO 2020, incorporate some kind of physical activity, and address the key social integration issues of social isolation and/or social mixing.
£500 – £1,000
- The Free Kicks Fund
The fund will give grants for organisations to run 12 sessions of informal football-focused activity. The fund will aim to improve physical activity for Londoners and engage with groups who are traditionally less active.
£1,000 – £4,000
- The Community Fund
This fund will be allocated to community-led projects which have a theme that links either to sport (not restricted to football) or Europe in London, with the aim of bringing people together during UEFA EURO 2020.
£4,000 – £10,000
Do you have an idea? No matter how big or small, the Mayor’s team want to hear your pitch. Applications are open now until 9am on Monday 20 January 2020. You can apply for more than one strand if you wish.
