myLotto24 is delighted to have partnered with SportsAid and we look forward to making a positive contribution to the development of our chosen athletes.
myLotto24gives vital financial support to 50 of the UK's best young athletes a year through its Winners of Tomorrow fund. Working with SportsAid, the fund helps them to overcome their greatest barrier to success: the cost of their sport.
The lotto betting company also provides a wealth of other support for the athletes. It quickly established a very effective buddy scheme which gives each athlete a dedicated point of contact - a buddy - in the company. The buddies are responsible for keeping in touch with the athletes, following their progress and sharing any news about their training and competitions.
myLotto24also provides athlete workshops where the athletes get specialist nutrition and media training to help them develop their sporting careers from other perspectives.
myLotto24is a lotto betting company which takes bets on the outcome of various European lotteries. Part of the Tipp24 Group, which is listed on the German Stock Exchange, and is licensed in the UK by the Gambling Commission. Its partnership with SportsAid was launched in August 2014.
Andrew Poole from the Corporate Affairs Team at myLotto24 said, "A number of myLotto24’s products are based around sport - for example, we run the Arsenal Lotto - and as a result it is important to us to be able to play our part in funding the next generation of world class athletes here in the UK.
"We have chosen to do this through SportsAid and our 'Winners of Tomorrow’ Fund. We are really excited to see what we can achieve working with SportsAid and, more importantly, what the athletes we fund can achieve."
"My SportsAid Award from myLotto24 will be a huge help. Last year I travelled 11,000 miles to get to cycling events and this year will be more due to the training camps with the Olympic talent team.”
