2020 Application Update

Important Information


This is important information for all athletes who applied for support. Please see the below 2020 Athlete Application Update.

Thank you for taking the time to apply to the GLL Sport Foundation in 2020 – the UK’s largest independent athlete support programme.


The unprecedented impact of the Coronavirus on our business and the world of sport in similar lockdown, means that we have taken the difficult decision to suspend the Foundation’s activities until further notice.  Therefore we will not be processing applications at this time.


We remain extremely proud of the Foundation, which typically helps more than 3,100 athletes reach their potential each year through leisure centre memberships, Physiotherapy support and financial grants. We will be back.


We understand that this will be disappointing for you and are hopeful we will be able to resume The Foundation’s activities later in the year.


We ask for your understanding at this difficult time and will contact you again when normal business resumes.


In the meantime, best wishes to you and all of your family and please stay safe.
