The Supporters Club from BT Sport aims to build a better world through sport with the help of our BT Sport viewers and our employees. We also do this with the help of key partners such as the Premier League, Premiership Rugby and Comic Relief. The Supporters Club helps disadvantaged young people in communities across the UK and overseas.
We focus on using sport to achieve four key outcomes:
- Improved enrolment and achievement in school
- Reduced levels of exploitation and abuse
- Increased skills and opportunities to gain employment
- Improved health and wellbeing and working with young people with disabilities
The concept is simple. We raise money by encouraging BT Sport customers to make a recurring monthly donation to The Supporters Club. All the money we raise is managed by Comic Relief and granted to sustainable projects that use sport as an enabler for social change. We have already raised £4 million and funded more than 40 charitable programmes.
BT Sport customers can donate £1, £3 or £5 a month to The Supporters Club. It's easy to set up and hassle free because we collect your donation via your BT bill.
We are covering the running costs of the fund so that 100% of donations go straight to The Supporters Club, which is managed by Comic Relief.
To keep you informed, we'll regularly update the website and broadcast TV programmes featuring campaigns funded by The Supporters Club money.
Why is BT doing this?
We see The Supporters Club as a powerful way for us to work hand in hand with our customers, employees and BT Sport partners to make a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged young people through the power of sport.
If I stop subscribing to BT Sport and I have set up a recurring donation to The Supporters Club, will this donation continue?
No, if you stop taking BT Sport your recurring donation will also automatically stop. If you would like to continue donating, you can do so on My Donate at www.btplc.com/mydonate.
Can I cancel, increase or decrease my donation at any time?
Yes - you can do any of these things at any time online. If you make a change part way through a billing month, the amount will be adjusted from the date you ask us to make the change.
Can I get my donation refunded if I change my mind or can't afford to pay my BT bill?
Donations can be cancelled with immediate effect, but they can't be refunded.
Will BT still support other charitable initiatives like Red Nose Day, Sport Relief?
Yes, BT will continue to support other initiatives like Red Nose Day and Sport Relief.
