Howdens Game Changer Programme

In partnership with the Irish FA Foundation, the Howdens Game Changer Programme aims to supply kitchens to grassroots Football Clubs, giving them an opportunity to serve their communities with food and refreshments.

We want to support projects that will replace or enhance your current kitchen and the food and drink that can be offered. We would like applications to demonstrate how the improvements will connect with your communities and make the best use of the skills within your club.


If successful, Howdens will be responsible for the supply of the kitchen to be fitted by a local tradesperson in co-ordination with the club. The kitchen includes the cabinets, drawers, hinges, handles, frontals, cabinet trims, worktops, sinks, taps and appliances. If your application is successful, a guidance pack of these items will be provided.

Priority will be given to applications that include a nominated fitter that will install the kitchen on a voluntary basis (or a professional fitter funded by the club) and applications that provide more detail on the impact a new kitchen would have on their club.

Applications are now closed, our staff will be in touch with information on the next steps.

The personal data collected in this application form will be used by the Irish FA Foundation to process your application and assess your eligibility for this grant funding programme. More information on how we process your personal data, and your privacy rights, can be found here.

Your personal data will also be shared with Howdens in order to assess your eligibility for this grant funding programme, and for those successful applications, Howdens will use your personal data in relation to the supply and fitting of new kitchen units and appliances at your football club.
