Emergency support programmes
As the recreational game returns to play, the ECB emergency funding schemes that are available to cricket clubs and leagues have undergone some changes to specifically help clubs reopen and get games of cricket on under new COVID-19 guidelines.
With many government funding sources concluding, ECB is extending the ‘Return to Cricket Grant Scheme’ until December 2020.
The differential funding level between clubs with junior sections and adult only clubs and the recommended £15,000 turnover limit have been removed.
In addition, the ‘Emergency Loan Scheme’ has increased the amounts that can be loaned and extended the scheme indefinitely. The scheme may be particularly useful if clubs require support over the coming winter and provides longer term sustainable support.
