Apply For A Rebel Sport Grant

As the Home of Sport, we recognise the importance of sport and are passionate about helping all kiwis access it. So, every year Rebel Sport is giving away $160,000 via Rebel Sport Grants, a programme designed to help deserving grass roots clubs across New Zealand provide the means for more kiwis to get involved in and play sport.

Who can apply?

Rebel Sport Grants have been designed to support grass roots clubs and communities. By this we mean non-professional (amateur), non-profit sports clubs or organisations that are affiliated, accept public memberships or registrations, and play regular games as part of a competition. Proof of affiliation, a certificate of incorporation and a personal ID are required on application.


What do the grants cover?

Each club can apply for up to $10,000 to put toward expenses which are required to play sport and help enable more people to participate in grass roots sport. These expenses could be items such as uniforms or equipment, health and safety essentials, ground maintenance or club facilities.

Note that we will not cover non-essential items such as prize money or payment to a player, beverages or personal items which are not essential for playing sport. If there is misuse of any amount of the grant by the Grant Recipients, Rebel Sport may recover any amount of the grant that has been misused.
