Sports Energy Support Scheme

In November, Sport Ireland opened the application process for €35 million of funding in response to the rising energy costs crisis. The purpose of the funding, secured as part of Budget 2023, was to support National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs) and their affiliated Clubs with the rising energy costs associated with the provision of sport throughout the winter period.

Hockey Ireland subsequently engaged all our Clubs with the application process, and we are pleased to announce that thirty (30) successful Clubs have met the eligibility criteria. These eligible Clubs will be contacted in the coming days with details of how they can draw down the allocated funding.

We would like to thank Sport Ireland and the Government for this vital support mechanism on behalf of all our Clubs. 

Any questions on the funding can be submitted to
