Sportsmatch was founded in 1992, following a move by a number of people in the sponsorship industry to encourage businesses to invest money in grass roots sports.
In its first 6 months of funding, Sportsmatch had £1 million to distribute and made 61 awards. Since that time, Sportsmatch has grown to an organisation employing eight staff full time. It now has an annual budget of approximately £3.5 million and funds more than 400 projects a year.
