ECB Emergency Support for Clubs & LeaguesApril 17, 2020
Cricket clubs and leagues are now able to apply to two new ECB funding schemes specifically designed to help see them through the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
ECB Emergency Loan Scheme
The ECB Emergency Loan Scheme aims to support affiliated cricket cubs during the COVID-19 crisis by providing funding to assist clubs to cover any shortfall in essential day-to-day running and maintenance costs until normal recreational cricket activity can be resumed.
Clubs affiliated to their County Cricket Board in 2019 or 2020.
How much loan can a club apply for?
- Club with a junior section (including All Stars Cricket / Dynamos Cricket) between £1,000 and £5,000
- Club with an adult section only between £1,000 and £3,000

Please note – Only if clubs are unable to apply for other Government or Sport England funding programmes or are not eligible for the loan scheme above, then they can look at the grant scheme below. Leagues are also able to access the scheme in exceptional circumstances.
Return to Cricket Grant Scheme
The Return to Cricket Grant Scheme aims to provide cricket clubs and leagues with assistance in exceptional circumstances, where other potential sources of financial support are not available, e.g. constitutionally a loan is not an option or there is a high risk of default in paying back a loan.
