Entain empowers aspiring sports champions and pledges funding to grassroots football clubs
Entain, the global sports betting and gaming group, has supported over 200 aspiring Olympic, Paralympic, Commonwealth and World Champions through its partnership with SportsAid, and provided grants to 100 non-league football clubs through its multi-million-pound, multi-year programme, Pitching In.
These two milestones are highlighted in Entain’s latest Social Impact Report, which highlights progress made by the Group’s registered charity, the Entain Foundation, as part of a commitment to invest £100 million in its communities over five years.
Entain’s sustainability strategy has been informed by an extensive double materiality assessment and is structured across the four pillars of: 1) leading on player protection, 2) providing a secure and trusted platform, 3) creating the environment for everyone to do their best work, and 4) positively impacting our communities.
Virginia McDowell, Non-Executive Director and Chair of Entain’s Sustainability and Compliance Committee commented: “I’m extremely proud of the long-term collaborations Entain has built with charities and academic institutions across the globe, supporting them to achieve our common goals and positively transform our local communities. We’ve made brilliant progress this year and look forward to continuing our leadership in this important area, guided by our latest sustainability strategy.”
