Sport NI’s COVID Recovery Programme for Sports Organisations is now open for applications with a closing date of noon on Friday 28 January.

The programme will support eligible organisations in Northern Ireland which have been negatively affected by the COVID pandemic in the UK financial year 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022; and which have a financial operating deficit during that period which is attributable in full or in part to COVID.

The application portal can be accessed via the Sport NI website. This should provide all guidance notes and information, as well as a login screen for applicants to enter their email and a password.

Sport NI will present two online information sessions through Zoom on Monday 17 January and Wednesday 19 January from 6.30-7.30pm. To register interest to attend, email [email protected]

NICVA, the Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action, will also hold two information sessions (the content is the same for both so you only need to attend one). Register for session one on Monday 10 January (2pm to 3pm) or session two on Wednesday 12 January (12pm to 1pm).

Programme specific queries can be sent by email to [email protected] Team

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
