About BaseballSoftball UK Facilities Fund

BaseballSoftballUK's Facilities Fund is open to any baseball and softball not-for-profit club, league or association in the UK officially registered to the BSUK Development Charter. A complete list of Chartered organisations can be found here, and all members of the British Baseball Federation and British Softball Federation are automatically enrolled.

BaseballSoftballUK cannot fund individuals (including sole traders), or organisations established to make a profit. For further eligibility clarity, please contact your relationship manager.

The BaseballSoftballUK Facilities Fund is specifically designed to help clubs improve the fixed assets of their facilities.

The funds may be used for goods such as:

  • backstops
  • dirt
  • fencing
  • dugouts
  • pitching mounds
  • 'permanent' storage, i.e. on-site shipping containers

Your project will have to be aligned with the priorities of the BSUK Two Sports One Ambition strategy announced in August.

The maximum award from the BSUK Facilities Fund will be £5K per club per year, while the expected average award will be around £2K. At least two awards will be given out by BSUK each year for the first five years of the Fund's existence. Further awards may become available based on future funding.

The BaseballSoftballUK Facilities Fund requires organisations to match funding as part of their application. The match funding required is expected to be of equal or greater value than the amount of funding being applied for.

If your organisation is looking to create or improve its facilities and would like to be considered for a Facilities Fund grant, please get in touch with your relationship manager or send us an Expression of Interest to facilitiesfund@bsuk.com.Your relationship manager will help you assess whether your plan meets funding criteria.

If successful, funds will be delivered to your club after 1st April 2021; once all criteria are met and the funding has been approved, the project must be completed within 12 months of the date your grant was awarded.
