WITH €40 MILLION available, the Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Michael Ring TD, has urged all sports clubs and organisations in Ireland to register for the Sports Capital Programme as soon as possible.

Opening at noon today, clubs have until February 7 to register for the Programme with February 28 being the deadline for applications.

“More than a thousand organisations have registered already and there is only limited time available for other sports clubs to apply. The 2012 Programme was a huge success but demand outstripped supply, with €7.50 sought for every €1 available.

“That’s why it’s vital for clubs and groups applying for the 2014 scheme to get registered immediately and start filling out the online form now to give themselves the best chance of making a good application,” Minister Ring said.

The Sports Capital Programme is the main source of Government support for development of sports facilities and equipment for clubs and organisations throughout Ireland.

Applications for the Programme can only be made online on www.sportscapitalprogramme.ie.
