Support came in the form of the Emergency Relief Fund. A pot of £200,000 from the Welsh Government was matched with £200,000 from Sport Wales. 

Another £200,000 was eventually provided by Sport Wales, meaning than over £600,000 was given out to more than 300 applicants in emergency financial support to cover the first months of lockdown.

Here’s what the Emergency Relief Fund supported in your sport and local area.
