What we do

Sporting Capital enables us to extend Sporting Assets' vision by funding organisations that make a difference to individuals and communities through sport.

Our investments are focused on helping these organisations to become more sustainable through developing new, and scaling existing, revenue streams.

How we do this

The £3m Sporting Capital Fund offers loan funding of up  to £150,000 to eligible organisations.  The investment is a simple, repayable, unsecured loan. 

We expect to invest into around 30 projects.

Why we do this

We believe sport plays a vital role in our communities. And we are passionate about supporting those organisations that deliver sport and physical activity to develop into strong and sustainable local community businesses.
