Premier League launches Defibrillator Fund for Grassroots Facilities
19 Jul 2021 by Mazeline Hemmings
The Premier League has announced that it will provide funding for the implementation of more than two thousand defibrillators at grassroots football clubs and facilities in England.
Working in partnership with the Football Foundation and the FA, a first phase of the Premier League Defibrillator Fund will provide defibrillators in time for the start of the 2021/22 season to Football Foundation funded facilities that are currently without a life-saving device onsite.
In the second phase, which is expected in September, grassroots clubs that own their facilities will be able to apply for funding for a defibrillator.
