Support for SportSports clubs and community organisations can apply for financial help through our Support for Sport grant scheme.
If successful, the money can be used to improve facilities, train coaching staff, buy new equipment, hold events or try out a new initiative or activity.
Support for Sport also helps to fund major sports events held in Belfast, like the Irish Indoor Athletics Championships and the All-Ireland Corporate Games.
There are five 'types' of funding available:
- Support for Individuals grant
- Small development and equipment grants
- Large development grants
- Hospitality funding
- Events funding
