Funding and Facilities
Most organisations and clubs require funding to improve a) what they can offer or b) to improve what facilities they have.
This is certainly no different with cricket clubs or schools who are continuously striving to improve elements of their club to ensure what they offer to their members or pupils is of the highest possible standard.
There are two main areas that clubs are advised to look at when looking for funding or to improve their facilities.
The ECB is able to offer funding and financial support in a number of different ways:
- Interest Free Loans
- Small Grant Scheme
- Jewson Privilege Account
- Sport England Lottery Fund
- Fundraising Support

Developing a Project – from concept to completion
The ECB’s website provides a “one-stop shop” for details on how to plan your project from start to finish.

As well as the guidance that ECB provides around generic facility projects, the ECB also has technical specification documents relevant to specific projects. When embarking on a development it is important that these specifications are considered and adhered to as they provide mandatory criteria that potential funders will look for when deciding whether to financially support a project. The documents also provide practical advice for cricket club officials and important information for designers or companies that are quoting for facility developments.
The list of technical specification documents are as follows:
