The Matchroom Charitable Foundation was created to centralise the benevolent efforts of Matchroom Sport, the global sports promotion company headed by Eddie Hearn, and its subsidiaries – the Professional Darts Corporation, Matchroom Boxing, World Snooker and Matchroom MultiSport.
For over 30 years, Matchroom Sport has donated millions of pounds to a wide-range of charities throughout its many sporting activities, including sports and community charities, and a number of hospices for both children and adults.
Matchroom now promotes in excess of 200 event days per year in the UK, selling over 400,000 tickets in the process. Part of the Foundation’s funding comes from a contribution equivalent to £1 for every ticket sold for these events. The Matchroom Charitable Foundation aims to channel these monies to create a significant and sustainable impact on deserving causes which make a difference to people’s lives.
