Professional sport allocated £2.55 million of COVID support

Professional sports affected by the recent COVID-19 crowd limits have been allocated £2.55 million in financial support from the Scottish Government.

The funding comes from the £5 million announced for professional sport on 5 January, as part of £375 million in wider business support.  It will  support up to 75% of losses after the Omicron outbreak saw a limit of 500 introduced on outdoor crowds. This restriction will be lifted on Monday 17 January. The funding will also support clubs impacted by the limit of 200 on indoor sports.

The funding package is split as follows:

Ice hockey - £350,000

Basketball – £20,000

Horse Racing – £265,000

Rugby - £125,000

Football – £1.79million

Total: £2.55 million

Further funding from the £5million may be allocated in the event of further restrictions having significant financial impacts.
