Nearly £5million of National Lottery funding will help support Welsh sport through the Coronavirus crisis.
The multi-million pound package will form part of the £8.1million Sport Resilience Fund set aside by Sport Wales to help protect the sport sector in Wales from the consequences of lockdown.
The National Lottery will provide around £600m for good causes across the UK through a dedicated Coronavirus support package.
The Sport Resilience Fund is made up of funding from Welsh Government and National Lottery to help sport emerge from the crisis and continue to support people in Wales to enjoy being active.
Acting CEO of Sport Wales, Brian Davies commented:
“Sport in Wales owes so much to the National Lottery over so many years, and again we are being supported at such a challenging time for everyone.
“The National Lottery really will play a critical role in supporting clubs, sporting bodies and activities to survive the current crisis.
“We’re working closely and quickly with our partners within the sector on the very best use of the Sport Resilience Fund. The Emergency Relief Fund has also made awards to clubs that are at immediate financial risk.”
