Texaco Support For Sport Registration Recommended

A recommendation has gone out to sports clubs in Co. Tipperary to the effect that those intending to apply for funding under this year’s second Texaco Support for Sport initiative should register their interest ahead of the December 31st deadline by which actual applications should be made.

The scheme – which is open to sports clubs irrespective of sporting discipline, size, membership, age, cultural appeal, or gender – is one in which €130,000 is set aside for distribution in 26 equal amounts of €5,000 to successful applicants on a county-by-county basis.

Last year, the first year of the scheme, the successful Co. Tipperary applicant to receive a €5,000 award was Cullen-Lattin FC who used it to ‘purchase outdoor gym equipment’.

Amongst those from which new applications will be welcomed are clubs whose applications may have been unsuccessful last year.
