Sporting Capital is a social investor that focuses specifically on organisations and projects that help to develop communities through sport and physical activity.   

Sporting Capital manages a £3m social investment fund that focuses on supporting the development of community sports organisations into sustainable community sport businesses. The idea behind Sporting Capital is to use repayable investment - basically a simple, interest bearing loan - to help community sports organisations to do more, and in particular to create more sustainable revenue and ultimately impact.   

We are still actively lending during the Covid-19 pandemic. We can offer emergency funding if your business, under normal trading conditions could afford to repay a loan

Our Case Studies

Kidsbrook Sports Centre
Kidsgrove Sports Centre Community Group

Kidsgrove Sports Centre Community Group is a CIO set up to save and then re-open Kidsgrove Sports Centre. Following extensive refurbishment the sports centre re-opened in 2022 and is now operated by the charity. Through the charitable community ownership model, every penny spent in the centre gets reinvested. Back into the Centre and back into the community. No shareholders. No profit-making. Just local community facilities for all.
