Sport Wales has launched a funding initiative called 'A Place for Sport', which will see £1m invested in community sports facilities.

Delivered in partnership with Welsh Government, the fund will support projects seeking to improve, protect or create new sporting facilities.

Primarily targeted at community sports groups, the fund has been designed for smaller-scale projects – such as floodlights, new multi-sport surfaces, sports equipment and the expansion or improvements to existing facilities. The deadline for applications is 28 June 2019.

According to Brian Davies director of performance at Sport Wales, the fund demonstrates a "firm commitment" from the Welsh Government to help modernise sports facilities.

"It's known that having the right facilities in the right place can have a big impact on a person's experience of sport and affects the likelihood of them participating on a regular basis," Davies said.

"This fund will help sports clubs, organisations and facilities across Wales to create environments at the heart of our communities for participation, enjoyment and fulfilment."
