Good news for the Posh Ladies as they receive grant to help with match days.
Great news for football in Peterborough today, as Peterborough United Ladies are celebrating receiving funding from the Premier League to help them prepare for the restart of football and safe return of supporters to their stadium.
The Matchday Support Fund grant will help Peterborough United Ladies put in place measures that will make their ground safer for the 2020/21 season given the challenges caused by COVID-19.
The grant will help ensure that we provide a safe and secure match day experience for all involved. This will include stewarding, clear signage, extra track and trace measures and cleaning essentials for players, spectators and staff.
The Matchday Support Fund is managed by the Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF), which is financed by the Premier League and supports non-league and Women’s Football Pyramid clubs with the cost of improvements to their grounds.
The Matchday Support Fund follows the recent Pitch and Club Preparation Funds, which saw £8.7m in grants awarded by the Premier League, The FA and Government’s Football Foundation to prepare the country’s playing surfaces and facilities for the return of football.
Jenna Lusk, Women/UCP/Training & Development Manager, said: ‘The matchday support fund has allowed us to take extra measures to increase and encourage spectators to attend our fixtures whilst ensuring the continued safety of those in attendance. We are extremely grateful to have received this support which will in turn have a positive impact on players, staff, officials and spectators alike.’
