Shipping Containers for Your Football Club With A £25,000 Grant

Recently the Football Foundation has announced that clubs could receive up to a £25,000 grant, which the UK government backs, if the club purchases new secure storage containers. The Football Foundation suggests that by football clubs acquiring new shipping containers,this will potentially provide a cost effective, long lasting solution for their storage capacity to be increased to store sports equipment, goal posts, footballs, training kit and flagposts to name a few! This will ‘free up’ space within the clubhouse/ external facilities to be better used by other requirements. 

The Football Foundation, in partnership with The FA (Football Association), often provides grants to support the development of grassroots football facilities in the UK.

The grant will fund purchasing a new (1 trip) or fully refurbished storage container with a minimum 12- month warranty.

At Boxtor, we have recently supplied a number of football, rugby and sailing clubs with our new 20ft dark green shipping containers.

Benefits of Using Shipping Containers for football storage:

  • Cost-Effective: Typically cheaper than traditional building methods.
  • Durable: Made from marine grade corten steel, they are robust, rodent proof and weather-resistant!
  • Moveable: Can be relocated if necessary with a HIAB truck.
  • Quick Delivery: Faster to supply a shipping container compared to conventional construction on site (and much cheaper too!).

To be eligible for the grant, you must be one of the following:

  • A not-for-profit football club or voluntary group
  • A Local Authority
  • A County FA
  • A Professional Club Community Organisation
  • An educational establishment providing facilities for the community
  • A registered charity
  • A not-for-profit company
  • A community interest company (CIC) or other social enterprise
  • A company limited by guarantee

You must also be able to explain why you require the additional space and the container must be stored at the applicant’s site as named in the application.

If you are a football club looking for additional storage, get in touch!
