Whole Sport Plan funding is provided by government through Sport England and is targeted at meeting the strategic aims of Grow, Sustain and Excel (please see Sport Englands website for further information: www.sportengland.org), and the RFL's Facilities Strategy.

This funding is for community Rugby League.

If you would like to discuss a facilities project or idea that you feel may fit within the aims and objectives of the WSP Capital Fund then the first point of contact is the RFL's Service Area Coordinator for your area (click here for their contact details).

Decisions on projects are made regionally and proposed to national panels.

No project will be considered without the support of Service Area and Regional RFL staff.

Please also see the Case Studies page for examples of projects that have been supported
