Staithes FC, in partnership with Staithes Athletic and Social Club, will officially unveil their upgraded changing pavilion on Saturday 16 September at 12pm, thanks to a grant from the Premier League, through the Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF) – the largest funders of non-league football in the country.

The grant has enabled the club to improve its existing changing pavilion which now comprises: separate home and away changing facilities; two officials’ changing rooms; a versatile open area and two store rooms. Staithes’ changing provision now meets the guidelines set out by both the FSIF and the FA National Ground Grading Criteria.  

The project was made possible thanks to a £25,725 grant from the Premier League, through the Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF), the largest funders of non-league football in the country.

The project also received £6,000 raised by members of the Staithes Sport Association. Other funding was provided by the Normanby Charitable Trust, NW Trading Limited, Staithes Arts and Heritage Festival and Staithes Athletic and Social Club.

Funded with £6.5m each year from the Premier League, the FSIF is the country’s largest provider of grants towards projects that help improve the comfort and safety of lower league football grounds in both the professional and amateur game. These improvements range from new football stands and turnstiles to floodlighting and improved provision for disabled supporters.
