Assistance to help crowds return to matches


Quakers awarded funding to help return to action


Quakers are celebrating receiving £15,000 funding from the Premier League to help us prepare for the restart of football and safe return of supporters to our matches at the Northern Echo Arena.

The Matchday Support Fund grant will help Quakers put in place measures that will make our ground safer for the 2020/21 season given the challenges caused by COVID-19.

We will use the grant to purchase cleaning materials and install hand sanitisers, barriers and signage at various places around the Arena.

The Matchday Support Fund is managed by the Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF), which is financed by the Premier League and supports non-league and Women’s Football Pyramid clubs with the cost of improvements to their grounds.

The Matchday Support Fund follows the recent Pitch and Club Preparation Funds, which saw £8.7m in grants awarded by the Premier League, The FA and Government’s Football Foundation to prepare the country’s playing surfaces and facilities for the return of football.

We would like to thank the Premier League and Matchday Support Fund for their generous assistance.
