Sports Capital Grants - All Your Club Needs to Know

Ballyhass 2020 Generic Boat

UPDATE 11/01: The deadline for submitting applications has been extended to March 1st.

We know the Sports Capital Grant process can seem daunting at first - that's why we are hosting a special free of charge information session next week with sector experts 2into3.

Accessing Sports Capital Grant funding is a great opportunity to get support for infrastructure, equipment and facilities for your triathlon club.

2into3 will cover all the key points and helpful tips to maximise the scoring of your application.

Date: Tuesday, 12th January 2021
Time: 7pm - 8.30pm
Location: Zoom


The session will cover the dos and don’ts of the Sports Capital programme and how our clubs can come out on top.

Since 2014, 2into3 have secured approximately €1.3m in Sports Capital funding for clubs around the country. Based on evidence, between 10%-20% of all applications will be invalid, meaning that the applications were completed incorrectly.

Only the top 75% of valid applications will receive funding, which is based on a scoring system. Triathlon Ireland wish as many of our clubs to apply and be successful from this programme, while limiting invalidity.

Most recently, of the €52m that was open to clubs in the 2018 round of allocations, 16 triathlon clubs secured over €119,000. This figure was an improvement on previous years, but we have room to improve ahead of the next round of Sport Capital funding.

It is hoped that this event will help encourage more of our clubs to apply as the programme not only funds infrastructure work, it also funds non-personal sports equipment which can include bikes, turbo trainers, rowing machines, gym equipment, storage containers and much more.

This is your opportunity to gain valuable insight on the  Sports Capital Programme from the experts in securing these grants
