Sports Capital Programme

The Sports Capital Programme aims to foster an integrated and planned approach to developing sports and physical recreation facilities throughout the country. In particular, its objectives are to:

  • assist voluntary and community organisations, national governing bodies (NGBs) of sport, local authorities and in some cases VECs and schools to develop high quality, safe, well-designed, sustainable facilities in appropriate locations and to provide appropriate equipment to help maximise participation in sport and physical recreation
  • prioritise the needs of disadvantaged areas in the provision of sports facilities
  • encourage the multi-purpose use of local, regional and national sports facilities by clubs, community organisations and national governing bodies of sport

Online System for Sports Capital Programme

The Sports Capital Programme is now online in a system called OSCAR (Online Sports Capital Register).

This is the only way to apply for grants under any future rounds of the Sports Capital Programme. OSCAR also allows groups to view previous grants and payments, change contact details, seek payment of a grant and otherwise communicate with the Department online. 
 
Any organisation that wishes to make any future applications must first register online at WWW.SPORTSCAPITALPROGRAMME.IE. The Department has written a GUIDE TO THE REGISTRATION PROCESS. Please read this prior to registration. An Irish language copy of the guide is available HERE.
