government response details
Sport clubs are the heart of our local communities and it is vital they are protected.The Government gave unprecedented financial support to businesses through tax reliefs, cash grants and employee wage support, which many sports clubs have benefited from. Sport England’s Community Emergency Fund has also provided £210 million directly to support community sport clubs and exercise centres through this pandemic.We know that the decision not to reopen stadia to spectators has had economic consequences for sports and clubs across the country who relied on those fans for income. We have asked sporting organisations, including the British Basketball League (BBL), for detailed financial returns to understand their particular pressures and challenges, and we will continue to design the package of support that will be available.The Government was pleased that the BBL was able to confirm the start of its new season on 30th October.Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport
