GO GOLD Funding Programme

The aim of GO GOLD is to support talented athletes from Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland. The funding programme is there to support athletes who are competing at Regional (East Midlands), National or International level in an Olympic, Paralympic or Commonwealth discipline, or in a locally recognised priority sport.

GO GOLD also now operates a means testing system, offering financial support to athletes who can demonstrate a financial need for the funding.

For 2020/21, 52 local athletes from 18 sports are being supported. Find out more about them on the Profiles and Blog pages.

Applications for the 2021/22 GO GOLD Funding Programme will open in late November 2020. For more information on how to apply, please click the 'Athlete Funding' button below.

We have supported hundreds of local athletes through our GO GOLD Funding Programme since 2007-2008. In our highlights section we look to celebrate the ongoing achievements of our former GO GOLD Ambassadors and Athletes.
