Framlingham Town FC unveil new stadium upgrade in Suffolk

Framlingham Town FC officially unveiled their new stadium upgrade at Badingham Road recently (Saturday 1 April 2017) 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 the Suffolk-based club, who play in the Eastern Counties Thurlow Nunn Division One, to meet The FA’s National Ground Grading criteria, which will assist their ambitions to further climb the National League System.

The new facility comprises of pitchside perimeter fencing and access gates, which will benefit local supporters, Framlingham Town’s senior and Under-18 sides, and Framlingham Sports Club.

Funded with £5.2m each year from the Premier League, the FSIF – the sister organisation of the Football Foundation – 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. These improvements range from new football stands and turnstiles to floodlighting and improved provision for disabled supporters.

Fiona Whatling, Secretary, Framlingham Town FC, said: “We are extremely grateful to the Premier League, through the Football Stadia Improvement Fund, for accepting our application as without help, we would not have been able to achieve our long awaited ambition of playing football at the next level.”

Peter McCormick OBE, Chairman of the Football Stadia Improvement Fund, said: “It’s brilliant to see Framlingham Town FC improve their home stadia facilities at Badingham Road, thanks to a grant from the Premier League, through the FSIF.

“These types of developments have a massive impact upon grassroots clubs, allowing them to progress up the football pyramid and really look forward to the seasons ahead. I wish all connected with the club the very best and look forward to monitoring their progress over the coming years.”
