Funding Options


Raising funds to build or improve sports facilities can be a difficult and time consuming process. However there are now a number of different options available, such as…

  1. Funding Body Application – External grants are available from a wide variety of funding bodies. We can provide design advice and budget costings to assist with funding applications. Your local ‘County Sport Partnership’ will also be able to guide you through the process.

  2. Facility Finance Options – In cases where facilities are needed urgently, but raising funds is proving difficult, our Facility Finance scheme may help. Facilities can be paid for over 3 or 5 years; paying in monthly, quarterly or annual instalments.

  3. Pitch Maximisation Scheme – Available to UK based schools, our scheme launched in conjunction with Field Sports Management enables existing sporting facilities to be improved at absolutely NO COST to the school.

For further helpful information on all of the above, please see the downloads section to the right.

Whichever of the 3 options you decide is right for you and your project, Thornton Sports has the expertise to design, manufacture, install or improve the new sports facility once funds have been raised.

With over 35 years experience and our in-house UK manufactured artificial grass surfaces, you can be sure that whichever route you choose, Thornton Sports will build a sports facility that you and your community will continue to enjoy and benefit from in years to come.
