Entain Announces Extension of Pitching In Trident League Partnership
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Community Engagement and Volunteering focus of unique sponsorship programme   

Entain, the global sports betting, gaming and interactive entertainment group, and the Trident Leagues are delighted to announce a multi-year extension of their groundbreaking, community sports investment-based partnership. The extension will provide critical funding in the coming years, backed by the Entain Foundation under the ‘Pitching In’ banner, for the 248 clubs that make up the Northern Premier, Isthmian and Southern leagues – collectively known as the Pitching In Trident Leagues, which make up steps three and four of the national league system.

Initially launched in 2020 the Pitching In partnership was specifically created to provide the financial investment required, to not only to ensure the successful operation of the leagues through the Covid-19 pandemic, but to enable individual clubs to engage with their local communities and make a positive social impact.

The Pitching In partnership has been designed from the ground up to deepen links between clubs and their local communities. The successful delivery of this aim has been supported by two major initiatives, the Trident Community Fund (“TCF”) and the Pitching In Volunteer Hub, both which, will see further investment as the partnership continues.

In December 2020 Entain became the founding partner of the TCF, investing £150k every year specifically to enable clubs to engage in a wide range of vital community-based projects and invest in their local areas. To date over 65 grants of up to £5,000 have been made with a focus on strengthening community relations. Successful projects include: programmes to enable disadvantaged children to participate in football; youth, women’s and disability coaching schemes; community fitness clubs; walking football for older generations; first aid and steward training; youth development schemes and; mental health support. (See notes for editors for TCF case studies).

In May 2022, Entain unveiled the Pitching In Volunteer Hub, a unique online portal that has become a one-stop-shop for every Trident League club to connect football fans with potential volunteers. The Volunteer Hub provides a simple web-based interface through which clubs are able to post volunteering vacancies, while fans can search for available opportunities either at a specific club or based on their location. (See notes for editors for volunteering case studies).

Stuart Pearce, the former England legend and captain, who famously spent over five years in non-league football as a Wealdstone FC player, will continue to serve as the Pitching In ambassador.  Commenting on the launch, Pearce said:

“This is fabulous news not only for the Pitching In Trident Leagues themselves but for football in general. It provides a vital injection of cash to help the leagues to thrive but, perhaps even more importantly, it is helping to bring the clubs and their local communities together.

“The Trident Community Fund is just a brilliant initiative to allow cubs to really connect with their local people while the Volunteer Hub is a real gamechanger for promoting volunteering at the community level.”

Entain CEO, Jette Nygaard-Andersen said: “We are truly proud of what we have achieved with Pitching In and our partnership with the Trident Leagues, particularly in the positive impact it is having on grass roots sports and for social engagement.

“Through the Entain Foundation we are committed to making a positive contribution to grassroots and community sport, which plays such a huge role in the lives of our customers.”

In a joint statement, the Pitching In Trident League Chairs – Nick Robinson, Isthmian League), Mark Harris (Northern Premier League) and Anthony Hughes (Southern League) said:

“We couldn’t be more pleased that Entain are extending their Pitching In partnership with us. This is truly unlike any other sponsorship that we have been involved in. The entire focus of the programme is around how, together, we can help clubs to develop and deepen their engagement with local communities.

“The TCF and Volunteer Hub are fantastic examples of their commitment to non-league football and how it can make a positive difference in people’s lives.”

UK fans are now able to get even more involved with OKTAGON MMA, after news broke that fans can bet on Europe’s leading MMA promotion with SkyBet.

Although fans can already bet in the UK via William Hill, the move to SkyBet opens up the market even further for fans wishing to get involved with the action.

OKTAGON has made significant strides to get more involved with its ever-growing UK fanbase, with the first ever show on these shores in November 2023 at the AO Arena in Manchester.

On the back of that success, OKTAGON returned twice in 2024; the first coming at the Utilita Arena in Newcastle in January, before an enthralling night at the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham in April.

OKTAGON MMA co-owner Pavol Neruda commented: “We are really pleased that our fanbase in the UK and Ireland can now engage even further with OKTAGON MMA.

“SkyBet is an extremely well-respected platform, and this exemplifies the growth of OKTAGON MMA in the UK and Ireland, a market where we have dedicated significant effort to expand, and shine a light on up-and-coming MMA talent.”

UK fans can place their first bet via SkyBet for the next OKTAGON tournament, when the organisation lands in Prague at the spectacular Fortuna Arena for OKTAGON 58 for the blockbuster rematch between Karlos Vemola and Attila Vegh in front of 27,000 fans.
