Good Cause & Charitable Initiatives
A Track Record for Leaving a Lasting Legacy
Sportech is committed to supporting good causes and charitable initiatives within the local communities that its businesses operate within. We have a track record of leaving a positive lasting legacy, which includes owning and operating some of the most trusted names in the gaming market including the iconic Football Pools brand, which has helped raise over £1.1 billion for good causes and charitable initiatives over the years.
We are committed to continuing to support good causes in the local communities which our business operate in, and during the past 10 years from 2008 to 2017, Sportech businesses will have raised and donated over £21m ($28m) for charitable initiatives.
These charitable initiatives include raising over £14m ($18m) via our Sportech BUMP 50:50 charitable in stadia gaming technology across professional sports team foundations in North America which in turn donate to good causes within their local communities.
In addition, over £7m ($9m) will have been donated to a number of sports related charitable initiatives in the UK including partnering the Premier League, Football League and Scottish Football Leagues on key health initiatives including health screening for cancer and first aid provision at football stadia, as well as many grass roots initiatives including funding football for underprivileged youths across major cities in the UK.
We are proud of our heritage and we are committed to continuing to support the local communities in which our businesses operate within.
