Chasetown FC officially unveiled their refurbished changing facilities in Staffordshire recently (Saturday 11 August). This was thanks to a grant from the Premier League, through the Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF) – the largest funders of non-league football in the country.

The funding has enabled Step 4 club Chasetown FC, who play in the Evo Stik Northern Premier First Division South, to reconfigure and refurbish the existing changing rooms and pavilion. This has enlarged the current facilities and included the addition of an extra matchday officials changing room, to provide a separate area for male and female officials.

The project works have also comprised of the installation of brand new showers, toilets and benching in both the home and away team dressing rooms. The improvements ensure that Chasetown FC’s ground now meets the requirements of Category D of the FA National Ground Grading Criteria, ahead of the March 2019 deadline.

Founded in 1954, Chasetown FC currently play at The Scholars Ground, and the club’s first team, academy side and numerous local teams will benefit from the improvements made to the changing pavilion during the upcoming 2018/19 football season.

The project was made possible by a £12,775 grant from the Premier League, which is delivered through the Football Stadia Improvement Fund – the sister organisation of the Football Foundation.

Fred Butler, Project Manager at Chasetown FC, said: “We are delighted to have completed the improvement works to the changing facilities at the club. There is no question that without the assistance of the grant from the FSIF, we would not have been able to make these improvements.”

Peter McCormick OBE, Chairman of the Football Stadia Improvement Fund, said: “It is brilliant news that funding from the Premier League has helped Chasetown FC to undertake this project. The refurbishments made to the changing pavilion will not only improve the experience for its players, but also for matchday officials working at the football ground.

“Through funding from the Premier League, the FSIF is committed to improving football stadia infrastructure for lower league clubs like Chasetown FC. I hope that the changes made at The Scholars Ground will be appreciated and enjoyed by players throughout the 2018/19 football season and beyond.”
