Your Club Matters Stories

Hear from sports clubs just like yours about how they have used Club Matters to develop and grow. Find all a whole host of real-life examples from clubs, CSPs and NGBs at our Club Matters You Tube channel.

Community Assets Guidance

An interactive guide has been developed to help clubs understand their community rights. The guide is based on a written report authored by Dr. Adam Brown, Substance and Tom Hall, Sporting Assets. Taking control of sports assets can help clubs grow; develop new opportunities; secure their future and be more engaged with other local people and organisations, placing clubs at the heart of communities. To access the full resource, clubs will need to have registered and be logged-in first.
