Flutter Donates £400,000 to Community Clubs across UKI

Flutter had planned to distribute only £200,000 but decided to double its fund after receiving an unprecedented 1,282 applications

Flutter has reaffirmed its commitment to nurturing sports organizations across the United Kingdom and Ireland by agreeing to provide another £400,000 to local community clubs. This move is a part of the operator’s Cash4Clubs program, which has so far seen Flutter invest some £5 million into community sports.

The grassroots sports program will once again see Flutter provide money to cash-strapped community clubs involved in sports, such as badminton, skateboarding, American football, wheelchair rugby and surfing, among others.

Flutter’s program will see it award grants of £2,000 at a time to over 200 clubs in total. Flutter had originally planned to distribute only £200,000 among clubs in the UKI region but decided to double its fund after receiving an unprecedented 1,282 applications.

The money will help the community organizations improve their facilities, purchase new equipment, fund coaching programs and invest in sustainability. This year’s Cash4Clubs program places an emphasis on clubs in deprived areas, aiming to provide help to underrepresented communities.

UK’s Gambling Minister Praised Flutter

Ian Brown, Flutter’s UKI chief executive officer, commented on the matter, saying that community clubs are the “bedrock of sport in the UK.” He reaffirmed Flutter’s commitment to doing everything it can to help small clubs make a “real difference to people’s lives.”

I’m delighted we were able to double the size of this year’s Cash4Clubs fund to £400,000 after seeing a record number of applications come in. We are convinced Cash4Clubs will have a real impact in those areas that need it most.

Ian Brown, CEO UKI, Flutter

Britain’s Gambling Minister Stuart Andrew praised the Cash4Clubs initiative, saying that the fund will help many adults and children stay physically active, in line with the government’s Get Active strategy.

Staying active is vital for our health and wellbeing which is why the Government is investing over £400 million in grassroots facilities to make sure every community has access to the facilities they need.
