Tintwistle Athletic FC is one of just 125 clubs nationally, selected by the FA as a pilot club that will shape the future grassroots framework in England.
Paul Thorogood, Chief Executive of the Football Foundation, said: “The Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund is dedicated to improving grassroots sport across the country, and I am pleased to hear that their investment is going to support Tintwistle Athletic FC in their pitch expansion project.
“This will be of real benefit to its players in developing their game. Through the investment of the Premier League, The FA and the Government, via Sport England, the Football Foundation is working hard to support improvement at all levels of the game, and this is a great example of its work taking place across grassroots football.
“Since 2000, the Football Foundation has delivered projects totalling £1.4bn in grassroots sport investment, and it’s great to hear that Tintwistle is benefiting from this.”
