The Connell Awards programme recognises outstanding local community sports projects that seek to increase and sustain participation, or develop additional opportunities for young people within their chosen sport. MCFC is absolutely committed to Manchester and its supporters in the surrounding community.
The Connell Awards also recognise the volunteers who give their time to ensure the clubs run so smoothly, year after year. A grant of up to £5,000 to support urban sports clubs in the Manchester community is available. Awards may be used for project-related expenses, e.g. materials, supplies, equipment, transportation (not football kit).
If you would like to know of you are eligible to apply for a Connell Award, you can contact Alex Williams on 0161 438 7908.
