BRADFORD (Park Avenue) will receive less than one percent of the £10 million rescue package to the National League.

Reports have clarified exactly how much each club will collect individually from the deal which is based on last season's average gate attendances.

Chesterfield, Hartlepool United, Notts County, Stockport County, Torquay United, Wrexham and Yeovil are the highest earners, gaining £95,000 per month, while the other 16 National League outfits will obtain £84,000.

As for National League North and South, Chester, Dulwich Hamlet, Hereford, Maidstone United and York City are the only clubs to claim a bigger benefit. Those five teams will be given £6,000 more each month than the other 38 clubs (£30,000), which include Park Avenue and Guiseley, at Step Two.

Earlier this week, it was announced that clubs will be provided their share of the money, which culture secretary Oliver Dowden confirmed was available after a 'unique' partnership was formed with The National Lottery, by the end of October.

Before the season started, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport assured clubs at Steps One and Two of the non-league pyramid that financial aid would be there for the first three months of the 2020/21 season to cover the loss of revenue from gate receipts.

This was after a slow progression to allow spectators back into stadia at this level starting on October 1 was postponed due to the increase in Coronavirus infection rates across the country.

For Bradford, the vital funding, which will be sent through via the Football Association, means they will not have to dip into their projected budget for the current campaign.

Park Avenue's statement read: "The club are delighted and relieved to be able to confirm that after a board meeting last Friday, the National League ratified the National Lottery £10 million support fund for all 66 National League teams over the next three months.

"This money will be distributed to the clubs in time for October’s payroll. This will help them meet their financial obligations and go some way to alleviating the devastating financial impact of the Covid-19 virus.

"Whilst our incredible fans have supported as much as they can, watching the clubs live streaming and keeping their season tickets for the year, there was still a large impact on the club's revenues without supporters at the home games.

"The welcome news means that there shouldn’t be any significant changes to the club's overall budget for the season."

Dowden and FA chief executive Mark Bullingham are glad to see that the campaign has got off the ground as they work on a plan to get non-league fans back in stadiums.

The former said: “I know from a brilliant club in my area that National League football clubs are the beating heart of their communities and too precious to lose.

"This £10 million fund will provide a bridge to help clubs survive this immediate crisis whilst we work together on the safe return of fans."

Bullingham added: “This financial support is crucial as these clubs are the heartbeat of their communities and it would be a travesty if they were not able to survive.

"We have worked hard with the National League, Government and The National Lottery to make this happen and would like to thank everyone involved.

“The return of fans to stadiums remains a priority for us and we will continue to work with the Government and stakeholders across the game to reintroduce spectators in a safe way as soon as possible.”
