The Premier League Stadium Fund awards capital grants to lower-league clubs to support improvement of their stadium facilities for players, supporters and officials.
Funded solely by the Premier League and delivered by the Football Foundation, grants are available to clubs who play in Steps 1 to 6 of the National League System, Tiers 1 to 4 of the Women's Football Pyramid and clubs promoted into the English Football League.
Since 2000, the Premier League has funded over 5,500 ground improvement grants to 1,030 clubs across 114 leagues, including the EFL, National League system and women's football.
The Premier League Stadium Fund, previously known as the Football Stadia Improvement Fund, has contributed over £185 million towards projects including 309 stadium developments, 241 clubhouses, 717 stands/terraces, 541 floodlights and 471 changing rooms.
In Season 2021/22, the Premier League increased its funding by providing grants to non-league and women's clubs for work on projects designed to bring communities together and enhance economic sustainability through the new Club Development Fund.
Through the Premier League Stadium Fund, a total of £9m is being made available to support non-league and women’s clubs with the installation of energy-efficient LED floodlights at their stadiums.
The floodlight upgrades will financially benefit clubs who are facing increased energy bills.
They will also improve clubs' environmental sustainability as LED lights use less energy and need replacing less frequently compared to traditional floodlights.
Grants are being made available to National League System and Women’s Football Pyramid clubs over the next three years
The League also provided 155 grants totalling £1.1 million for ground repairs through the storm relief fund.
