Entain Foundation’s grassroots expansion will ‘change lives

After expanding into Italy, Entain Foundation, the non-profit organization of sports betting and online casino conglomerate Entain, has increased its support for community sports projects. 

Entain Foundation – Sports Senza Team-Up

The company has partnered with Sport Senza Frontiere Onlus to benefit underprivileged youth and their families throughout Italy, where Entain operates under the Eurobet, Bwin, and Gioco Digitale brands, through community sports and tutoring. The foundation’s donation will directly benefit Sport Senza Frontiere Onlus’ intervention program, which will provide beneficiaries with school and tutoring services, counseling, health education, and medical care, as well as support for parents.

Andrea Faelli, the managing director of Eurobet, stated that the company has a fantastic partner in Sport Senza Frontiere Onlus and that through this partnership, the organization will devote its full resources to transforming the lives of hundreds of disadvantaged children and teenagers across Italy – a process that will require free access to sport and education. They will continue to inspire optimism in order to enable the organization to expand its intervention program in the coming years and to make a significant difference in the lives of the program’s beneficiaries – positioning them for a brighter future.

The foundation stated that the investment is consistent with its mission to invest in grassroots sports. The foundation currently supports community sports initiatives in the United Kingdom through its SportsAid partnership and Pitching In program; Greece through Team Forward, an Olympic-focused athlete funding program; and Germany and Colombia through additional projects. Sport Senza Frontiere Onlus was founded in 2009 in Italy as a non-profit organization dedicated to making sport accessible to all and utilizing it as a vehicle for education, conflict resolution, inclusion, and social harmony.

The project, which will run through 2022, will benefit 400 direct recipients in Naples, Rome, Milan, Turin, Bergamo, and Trento. 

 Wellbeing for Good Project

Additionally, the foundation will assist Sport Senza Frontiere Onlus with a second initiative involving employees of Entain’s Eurobet brands in Italy. This six-month project, dubbed Wellbeing for Good, will begin next month and will aim to promote the well-being of Eurobet employees through sports activities, social inclusion projects, and team-building activities, as well as to encourage them to volunteer for Sport Senza Frontiere Onlus activities.
