Premier League to double grassroots funding
English top flight clubs to contribute over £100m per season to grassroots football from 2016-17
The Premier League’s investment in grassroots football is set to double from next season, as part of the government’s new strategy for sport.
The agreement will see the Premier League double its investment in grassroots and community football over the coming three seasons – to more than £100m a year – to help improve facilites and boost participation, although campaigners believe the increase in funding is still not enough.
Details of the deal are
On the day before a match, if there is the slightest possibility that the pitch will be unfit for play, a home team representative is to contact their opponents and make arrangements to re-contact them on the morning of the match. The. home team representative is to organise for the match pitch to be inspected, by a referee, as early as possible on the morning of the match. The result of that inspection is to be telephoned to the travelling team at the arranged time.
Important (a) The home team will organise a pitch inspection on the day of the game at a time that would allow the visitors plenty of time to travel a late kick off in these circumstances would be understood (b) The home team, having arranged to telephone the away team at a pre-arranged time must keep to that arrangement, regardless of any obvious weather improvement. (c) The away team should always make plans that all cars meet at one place before setting off. (d) The away team must not leave until they have received the pre-arranged telephone call to say whether the match is on or off. (e) The referee/grounds person decision whether the game is on or off is final and will not be questioned. Teams failing to carry out this procedure will be fined under Rule 10 (I) and will have to reimburse the visiting team any expenses incurred. REMEMBER THINK OF OTHERS, THAT YOU WOULD WISH THEY OF YOU.
Any team where there is a likelihood of the venue being waterlogged etc should consider swopping the venue either to a more suitable pitch or reversing the venue with the opposition.Please keep the opposition,the League and referees where appointed informed.
