The Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF) provides financial support to football clubs towards their ground improvement projects.

Funded by the Premier League with an annual budget of £6m, the FSIF awards capital grants to clubs from the Football League down to the lower levels of the FA National League System to improve safety at their stadia and to enable them to satisfy The FA’s ground grading requirements.

The FSIF helps to pay for crucial work that can be very costly to clubs but which is absolutely essential to allow our national game to function, whilst maintaining its unique depth and richness. Most importantly, FSIF investment also helps ensure that players and supporters can enjoy our national game in safety and comfort.

FSIF grants provide financial assistance towards a wide range of stadia projects, including the construction of new stands, installation of floodlights, turnstiles, or even relocating to an entirely new ground.
