Unique competition benefits south west sports clubs

A competition which has seen a total of £11,500 donated to south west sports clubs thanks to Exeter City Football Club sponsor Carpetright, has been extended into the new year.

Carpetright committed to making a £500 donation to a local team every time Exeter City won a match for the whole of 2022 in the ‘We Win You Win’ competition. And it’s been a huge success, with hundreds of applications and 23 clubs receiving a contribution during the year.

And the generosity looks set to continue – Carpetright have now extended the competition until the end of the 2023 season.

Matthew Dawes, commercial manager at Exeter City, said: “Carpetright have been terrific sponsors of our club over the last three years. We’re incredibly grateful to them for all the support they have shown us, and for initiatives like this. They understand the importance of community, something which is at the heart of our supporter-owned club, and these donations have gone a long way to helping the sporting community of the south west.

“It’s incredibly generous of them to extend the competition in this way. Let’s hope for lots more city wins in the coming months!”

Amongst the winners this year have been youth and senior football teams, a water polo club, rugby squads and walking football teams. Teams can apply for the fund by sending a pitch to Carpetright, explaining who they are and why they deserve help.
