DCMS is not aware of recent assessments of the financial viability of amateur sports clubs involved in cycling, rugby or football.
It would be within the remit of NGBs (National Governing Bodies) to assess the financial viability of their affiliated clubs.
The NGBs for cycling, rugby and football all have sections on their websites on the Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) Scheme. The scheme was introduced in April 2002 and allows local amateur sports clubs to register with HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and benefit from a range of tax reliefs, including Gift Aid, where they meet qualifying conditions.
A Club Survey was commissioned last year by Sport England to explore a number of issues including whether finances and funding are a cause for concern among clubs. The results are due at the end of February this year and Sport England would be happy to share the results of this survey in due course.
As recommended in the government sports strategy Sporting Future, The new Sports Business Council is looking into how to maximise income potential across sport particularly in light of falling lottery receipts.
