The National League are reportedly set to ask The FA for £17 million to help keep its clubs in business during the current season suspension.

With the grassroots game currently on shutdown – and the elite levels now suspended until at least 30th April – due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Athletic have reported that the National League will ask for the sum to cover its 68 clubs in the two tiers. It works out on average at just under £250,000 per club.

In a quote on the BBC website, Dagenham and Redbridge managing director Steve Thompson said: “The National League are trying to get figures together – this can’t be set in stone but the sort of figures I am hearing at the moment will be £15m to £20m.”
