Munster Cricket are delighted to announce a Sports Capital Masterclass for our clubs, which will be in partnership with Munster Hockey.
The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport will soon announce allocations for last year’s Sports Capital applications. Once this announcement is made, a new round is expected to open with €34m made available in Budget 2020.
- Date: Thursday, 28th November 2019
- Tea/Coffee/Meet & Greet: 6.30pm
- Masterclass: 7.00pm-9.00pm
- Venue: The River Lee Hotel, Western Road, Cork.
The Masterclass, delivered by 2into3, will cover the do's and don’ts of the programme and how our clubs can come out on top. Since 2014, 2into3 have secured €834,800 in Sports Capital funding for clubs. This Masterclass provides an opportunity for our clubs to learn from subject experts.
Based on evidence, between 10%-20% of all applications will be invalid, meaning that the applications was completed incorrectly. 2into3 will help you navigate the programme’s requirements, while also explaining how to avoid invalidity. Only the top 75% of valid applications will receive funding, which is based on a scoring system.
Munster Cricket wish as many of our clubs to apply and be successful from this programme, while limiting invalidity. Our clubs have not had consistent experience in applying for these grants. It is hoped that this Masterclass will help encourage more of our clubs to apply.
While the programme funds significant infrastructure work, it also funds non-personal sports equipment which can include balls, bats, portable netting, portable wickets, team jerseys and much more.
Many clubs are not aware of this. This is your opportunity to gain valuable insight from experts on a programme that is expected to receive over 2,500 applications this year.
We will be asking clubs to provide some information before the session, which will be confidentially handled by 2into3’s Darren McMahon.
Due to demand, we can only allow for a limited number of spaces. Please confirm your place with firstname.lastname@example.org before Friday, 22nd November.
The session is free to attend.
