The Sports Capital Programme aims to foster an integrated and planned approach to developing sports and physical recreation facilities throughout the country.
In particular, its objectives are to:
assist voluntary and community organisations, national governing bodies (NGBs) of sport, local authorities and in some cases VECs and schools to develop high quality, safe, well-designed, sustainable facilities in appropriate locations and to provide appropriate equipment to help maximise participation in sport and physical recreation
prioritise the needs of disadvantaged areas in the provision of sports facilities
encourage the multi-purpose use of local, regional and national sports facilities by clubs, community organisations and national governing bodies of sport
