Sporting Future, Government’s sport and physical activity strategy highlighted how important it is that people are able to access sports provision in the way that best suits them whether this is indoors or outdoors.

In the East Midlands region Sport England has provided £42,652,294 Exchequer and £118,453,712 lottery funding since the 2014/15 funding year.

It is not possible for Sport England to provide a cost breakdown between indoor and outdoor sports provision as funding data is not held in this manner.
