Matchbook Backs Right To Play World Cup

Tuesday, 2 June 2015

Online betting exchange Matchbook is giving its backing to one London's biggest charity football tournaments.

The Right To Play World Cup raises money for weekly sports and play activities for children throughout the world, teaching youngsters essential life skills that help them to overcome the effects of poverty, conflict and disease.

“Through our sponsorship, we are supporting 1,000 extra children taking part in Right To Play programmes twice a week for a whole year,” said Matchbook’s senior campaign manager, Danielle Desroches.

“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.”

The 2015 event takes place at Chelsea's Stamford Bridge on Wednesday 3 June and 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.
