Sport Relief 2016 was the Premier League’s 8th Sport Relief and we were really excited to have them on board.
The Premier League has donated millions to Sport Relief since its inception in 2002. For 2016, the partnership has extended to cover the Premier League Enterprise programme, which gave young people the opportunity to work with Premier League and Football League clubs on an educational and business-based range of topics. The Premier League Enterprise Challenge saw young people competing at national level to create a marketing strategy based around a question set by Premier League Executive Chairman, Richard Scudamore.
The Premier League also supported the Battle of the Five-A-Sides which saw Alan Shearer and Robbie Savage go head-to-head in a 3 day five-aside football frenzy! The mighty battle lasted 57 hours with 228 teams and over 1100 players taking park through rain, hail and shine. The Premier League turned every £1 donated into a crisp fiver and it raised over £500,000.
