Funding Cuts – UK School Games (UKSG)

/, Competitions, News/Funding Cuts – UK School Games (UKSG)

We have been informed by Sport NI that due to public sector cuts they will be unable to fully fund Northern Ireland Fencings attendance at the 2015 School Games.  Sport NI are cutting their contribution by 50%.  In effect this will leave a £3500 shortfall which will need to be filled.  NI Fencing strongly supported the Commonwealth Fencing Championships in 2014 and as a result we cannot offer any financial support for the UKSG competition. Consequently,  any fencer selected will be required to make a £150 contribution towards their participation in the UKSG upon confirmation of attendance.
