Delivered by England and Wales Cricket Board


The Return to Cricket Grant Scheme aims to provide cricket clubs and leagues with assistance in exceptional circumstances, where other potential sources of financial support are not available, e.g. constitutionally a loan is not an option or there is a high risk of default in paying back a loan.

Who can apply?

  • Clubs that are prevented from taking out an Emergency Loan by their own constitution or articles 
  • Cricket leagues (open-age or junior)
  • Clubs that have an annual turnover of less than £15,000

What will the scheme fund?

Clubs and leagues can apply for:

  • Utility or service costs
  • Rental charges
  • Staff costs (employees – not coaches or players)
  • Cleaning or maintenance commitments
  • IT licences
  • Security
  • Insurance
  • Equipment orders that can’t be deferred or recovered
  • TV / Broadband subscriptions (where it is not suspended)
  • Affiliations
  • Any other reasonable fixed and / or contracted costs
