Thank you National Lottery!

At a club like ours, every single penny counts - that's why this announcement is so important...

The FAW is pleased to announce that it is to allocate funding to the Cymru Leagues, after entering into a unique partnership with The National Lottery.

The financial package established by the FAW and The National Lottery will see each Cymru South club for the 2020/21 season, receive a one-off payment as a consequence of matches being played behind closed doors, owing to Welsh Government Coronavirus Regulations.

Football clubs across the Cymru Leagues are at the heart of their communities. This funding stream recognises the role Cymru Leagues clubs play in their communities beyond matchday.

This grant is dependent on the Cymru South being granted ‘Elite Athletic Status’ by Sport Wales, which would enable Tier 2 to start the 2020/21 season.
