The FA acknowledges that operating a league is a time consuming task for the volunteers engaged in it. It also recognises that the past ten years have seen huge strides in the development of IT-based league operations systems designed to ease the administrative burden on league officers.
In order for the leagues to make the most effective use of this league software, it is essential that they have the most up to date IT hardware to support these systems.
With this in mind, The FA offers an IT grant to all sanctioned leagues outside the National League System (Step 1-7) and the Women’s Pyramid, for the purchase of league laptops, personal computers, printers, scanners and other IT hardware. These grants are awarded on the basis of the number of teams playing in the league with a maximum grant of £1,200.
