Funding - Firstballacademy


We are a not-for-profit Social Enterprise, so if you love cricket and want to support us supporting others – to learn, play and increase engagement across the board, then join us!

There are a variety of ways you can support us:


Our Pay What You Can (PWYC) Membership provision, means that paying a bit above the odds makes all the difference. This helps to balance out our less able to pay members, making sure we reach the best potential around. You help us to meet our Commitment to gain a fantastic range of talent, irrespective of background, but especially enabling those from low income families who may otherwise not be able to get involved in Academy level cricket at all.


We are not just looking for companies to add their logo to our kit, we are looking for funding to help launch FBA initiatives such as PACE which will include Outreach workers and Coaches, administrators and funding kit, transport and equipment for players from low income families.

We welcome enquiries from Sponsors to get on board. By offering us your support we will display your logo, links and information about your Company to our members and supporters. Read more here or just get in touch and let’s discuss how you would like to get involved.


If you love cricket and want to see more engagement and some of the stereotypes and negative associations with the sport ironed out then please support us. We are a not-for-profit but your investment will be hugely valued and pay dividends in so many other ways than financial. FBA has big plans and positive development within the sport of cricket is at the core.

Our end goal is to gain a home ground and one day, build a cricket ground ourselves, so no matter how much you can support us, if you share our philosophy then you are very welcome!
