The Football Stadia Improvement Fund began in 2000 and provides grants to improve facilities for clubs in the Football League and further down the football pyramid.
The FSIF is funded by the Premier League and delivered by the Football Foundation and is the country's largest provider of grants towards projects that help improve the comfort and safety of lower league football grounds in both the professional and amateur game.
Grants can be used for the refurbishment and construction of new stands, provision for disabled fans, turnstiles, boundary fencing, perimeter barriers, dugouts, floodlights and changing rooms.
Examples of recent work by the FSIF include a new stand at Boreham Wood FC, which was opened by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, and assistance with the construction of a dedicated platform – as well as wider improvement works - allowing Wrexham and the club's Disabled Supporters Association to provide the very best facilities for their disabled fans.
In the last 12 months, the FSIF has awarded a total of 135 football stadia improvement grants.
