The Sports Capital Programme


The Sports Capital Programme (SCP) is managed by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport and provides grants to assist in the development of sports facilities and the provision of sports equipment throughout the country. 

Grants are available to:

  • Sports clubs
  • Voluntary and community groups
  • National governing bodies of sport and local authorities
  • Third level colleges, ETBs and schools may also apply for funding jointly with sports clubs. 

OSCAR 

The Sports Capital Programme online system is called OSCAR (Online Sports Capital Register). 

This is the only way to apply for grants under the Sports Capital Programme.  OSCAR also allows registered groups to view previous grants and payments, change contact details, seek payment of a grant and otherwise communicate with the Department online. 

Any organisation that wishes to use the system must first register online.  This guide will lead users through the registration process. Organisations only need to register once.
