Ulster University Sports Match Programme for Sports Union Clubs

As part of the Performance Sport Development Programme at Ulster, Sports Services are giving Sports Union Clubs (with a performance focus), the opportunity to bid for support from the University towards coaching expenses. Through the Sports Match Programme the University will;

Matched funding provided by the applicant Sports Union Club must come from a source external to the University e.g. governing body of sport, private sponsorship or club fundraising.  It cannot come from Sports Union funds or an existing Club budget.

In order to be considered eligible to apply for the matched funding, the Sports Union Club must fulfil the Eligibility Criteria as outlined in the supplementary online information and return a completed Application Form, Coaching Plan, KPIS & budget estimates by Friday 14 September 2018 at 4pm.
