Matchbook, the leading sports betting exchange, is supporting a corporate charity football tournament this Wednesday, June 3, at Stamford Bridge – the west London home of newly crowned Premier League champions Chelsea FC.
Matchbook is sponsoring the Plate Trophy at the Right To Play World Cup – an event that raises money for sports and play activities that teach youngsters from around the world essential life skills to overcome the effects of poverty, conflict and disease.
The tournament will feature 24 teams of up to 12 players each competing in five-a-side and then seven-a-side group games before an 11-a-side final takes place on the famous pitch.
Matchbook’s senior campaign manager, Danielle Desroches, said: “Through our sponsorship, we are supporting 1,000 extra children taking part in Right To Play programmes twice a week for a whole year.”
Desroches said that the sponsorship of the good cause tallies with Matchbook’s core values – namely to deliver the purest betting experience to the customer, with low commission rates, attractive odds and high volume liquidity.
“Every day at Matchbook we strive to deliver the best betting experience to our community of sports lovers, by committing to our goal of giving you more,” Desroches added. “On June 3, through our support of the Right To Play World Cup, we want to give more to those who need it most.
“As an organisation that experiences the importance that sports can play in everyone’s lives, we have a responsibility to ensure everyone can experience those joys.”
Members of the public, as well as the families of those competing, are invited to attend the event.
