Happy first birthday to The Supporters Club

The Supporters Club

To celebrate the first birthday of The Supporters Club we’re launching an exciting campaign - We Are One. We’ll be showcasing sport-inspired projects, backed by The Supporters Club, that have made a positive difference across the world.

Sport for all

The Supporters Club is a powerful partnership that brings BT, our BT Sports Partners and Comic Relief together to make sports accessible in communities around the world.

Monies raised through the club go towards funding coaches, mentors and teachers that help young people along the way, and making sure children have access to the benefits of sport.

It’s all about supporting the supporters.

Sounds great, how can I help?

It’s simple. If you’re a BT Sport customer you can make a recurring £1, £3 or £5 monthly donation to The Supporters Club. It’s easy to set up and hassle-free because BT collects donations via customers’ BT bills.

Thanks to the generosity of BT Sport customers, a massive £2.5 million has been raised so far (including £1.5 million from BT). This is something we passionately believe in, so not only do we match every £1 you donate, up to £1 million, we are also donating £500,000 through exciting projects.

What’s more, we’re covering the running costs of the fund so that 100 per cent of donations go straight to The Supporters Club, which is managed by Comic Relief.

Join in our celebrations

We’ve got some fantastic celebrities and sporting talent lined up to help us celebrate – Clare Balding, Lawrence Dallaglio, Austin Healey and Jake Humphrey are just some of the famous faces supporting this great cause.

Follow the festivities on Twitter (@Supporters #Weare1) and Facebook for up-to-the-minute news.
