The Sports Capital Programme is the primary vehicle for Government support for the development of sports and physical recreation facilities and the purchase of non-personal sports equipment throughout the country. Details of all allocations under the SCP since 1998 are published on the Department's website http://www.dttas.ie/sport/english/sports-capital-programme.

The Department moved to a new IT system in 2014 which provides a single system for managing all aspect of the Sports Capital Programme. The breakdown of allocations by sport since this new IT system was introduced is contained in the following table.

The production of accurate consolidated information by sport for the 2010 to 2014 period is not readily available.
