Matchbook is well known for being one of the best and most popular online sportsbooks, where Americans as well as people from the rest of the world can place bets and win great money easily. Now the bookie have decided to give some of the money that they make back to charity, having signed an agreement with the "Right To Play" charity organization.
The first donations were made on April 1st, where Matchbook would donate all commission that they made on bets to the charity organisation. CEO of Matchbook, Mark Brosnan feels that it is important to give something back to the community and is happy to have the chance to do so through his company.
“As an exchange community we’re delighted funds can be raised by our users to support Right To Play in creating healthier and happier communities for young people facing poverty, disease, violence and discrimination around the world. We have a community of thousands of sports fans and it is important for us to support a charity that uses sport and play to change the lives of so many who are in real need.” Brosnan stated and continued;
“Our business model has always been focused on giving value back to our users and we’re delighted to make this contribution on their behalf. Our commitment to a low-margin cost structure continues with the announcement that 0% commission will continue for all football handicap markets, until the end of the season, as well as ongoing commission-free betting on inplay tennis.”
“Competition is at the heart of our exchange community and in addition to donating funds to Right To Play directly, we will be allocating additional money to cricket super star and Right To Play Athlete Ambassador Darren Gough for him to use on our betting exchange. All money he wins from this will be donated to Right To Play on top of Matchbook’s donation on April 1st.” He concluded. Remember to keep an eye on when your commission will go to charity, if you want to support the good case in the future.
