November 24 – The English Football League (EFL), has opened a tender process for its official charity partner. It’s current charity partner is Prostate Cancer UK which has raised more than £2 million to support research into finding better ways of diagnosing and treating prostate cancer.
The new charity partnership will be for a minimum of two seasons and a maximum of three from 2018/19 onwards. “The partnership must continue to deliver the same high standards of success, while also supporting the strategic objectives and values of the EFL, the EFL Trust and all 72 EFL Clubs,” said an EFL press release.
Charity applications must come from registered charities with a UK-wide reach “who can demonstrate how the partnership will be used to champion a cause that offers lasting and sustainable impact in the UK.”
They will need to detail fund raising targets and how they would work with the EFL and its clubs, as well as providing their own credentials and the impact their charity is having.
Applications should be submitted to the EFL by midday December 8.
