Leinster Rugby is to host a Sports Capital Masterclass with fellow Sport for Business member 2Into3 at the Red Cow Hotel on Wednesday, 30th May.
As reported here in the last week, The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport will soon announce the 2018 round of the Sports Capital Programme.
In preparation for this announcement, and coming off the back of the recent Sport for Business and Ulster Bank Rugby Club Roadshow, Leinster Rugby has retained the services of 2into3 to assist in the application process.
The Sports Capital programme has historically been seen as only for large capital projects, however, a specific area of the grant programme that is not traditionally accessed is around non-personal sports equipment. This is one of the areas the Masterclass will focus on next week.
“Leinster Rugby is seeking to increase the allocations to, and performance of, our clubs in the Sports Capital Programme,” said Carol Maybury of Leinster rugby who is coordinating the event.
“The purpose of this collaboration is to encourage more of our rugby clubs to apply for funding, while also making sure to avoid invalid applications.”
“After this masterclass, we hope that clubs will have a better understanding of the sports capital process and know what they can apply for in the upcoming round.”
