Charity Football Events
We are a socially Conscious Business since launching in 2016, Business Fives charity football events have had a socially responsible objective;
To create a positive impact on Scotland’s communities, helping business support local charities and promote Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Our national business charity football events allow businesses to promote a healthy lifestyle to their employees. They offer the chance for people to get out of the office and focus on their well-being whilst raising money for their chosen charity. The five-a-side events allow businesses to come together and make new connections, strengthen relationships within their team but also focus on their CSR.
Each Business choosing to take part in the charity football events nominate a charity partner and all the money they raise is donated directly to their charity. On top of this Business Fives also has a company commitment to give a bumper donation to the winning team’s chosen charity.
10% of all revenue made from Business Fives charity football events go to the winning team’s charity partner.
Our continued support to Scotland’s charities goes beyond monetary aid. We allow charities to create relationships with a corporate audience through our marketing support and the opportunity to speak at our events. The five-a-side events open up a range of potential new partnership opportunities for charities.
Since 2016 we have had over 400 companies take part in our corporate five-a-side events across the country in different sectors such as Professional Services, Technology & IT, Construction, Housing and Property, Energy and Financial Services. There are several five-a-side events across Scotland including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee and Inverness. In the two years we have been managing the five-a-side events
