Latest News

We are passionate about supporting organisations to deliver wider impact through sport. We know the power of sport; it can play a role in bringing communities together, have a social and cultural impact, connect people from different walks of life and reduce crime and anti-social behaviour.

Sporting Capital enables us to extend the vision of Sporting Assets, by financing organisations that make a difference to develop people and communities through sport and help them to become sustainable.

What we fund

The £3m Sporting Capital Fund provides loan funding of between £50,000 and £150,000 to eligible projects. We expect to invest into around 30 to 50 organisations over the next 3 years.

The loan funding will be used to help organisations develop new projects, operations and revenue streams. Whilst every organisation’s needs will differ, we expect the funding to be used for projects and activities such as:

  • Equipment to support revenue streams
  • Recruitment, training and deployment of staff and volunteers
  • Equipment to support business functions, including finance, project management and governance
  • Other operating costs

If you are unsure if your idea or project fits our criteria please get in touch.

Who we can fund

We can invest in a wide range of organisations and projects from social enterprises, charities and profit-with-purpose businesses. And if you need support to get ready to take on repayable investment, you may be eligible for grant funding to pay for this.

Each investment will be tailored to the organisation. Loans will be repayable over 3
to 5 years and a repayment holiday of up to 24 months will be available, giving projects time to generate sustainable revenue.

Please get in touch if you are looking for investment. Our team can work through our specific eligibility criteria with you to help you understand whether you are right for investment from us.

Who we work with

Examples of projects we may be interested in investing in are highlighted below.

Supporting young people through football

The club develops young people to fulfil their ability and contribute to society, primarily through community based football teams and programmes. They focus on the individual but with a bigger goal of developing stronger, more cohesive and resilient communities. Investment will help the club to:

  • Develop sustainable revenues to support expansion of their youth programmes
  • Expand their offer to the local community with new spaces that can be used by other local organisations
  • Increase their volunteering activities and employment and training opportunities
Cycling community hub, in the heart of the city.

The project aims to create a community facility that delivers physical and mental well-being opportunities, education services and community activities all based around a community cycling hub in an urban environment.

It aims to deliver key social impact outcomes through a range of services including:

  • Successfully scale Youth Offender and pupil referral unit activities
  • Develop employment and volunteering opportunities through community café, trail building and training centre project
  • Increase opportunities for physical and social activity to the local community

Investment will help grow their revenue streams, including through their community café, education and training services, Youth Offender and pupil referral unit activities, to develop a truly sustainable community hub.
