Football Beyond Borders works with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in London who are disengaged at school, helping them finish school with the skills and grades to make a successful transition into adulthood. FBB achieves this by providing long-term, intensive support, built around relationships and young people’s passions, in the classroom and beyond and have since onboarded over 2,000 students across numerous schools all over the UK.

Having already made an initial donation of £20,000 to FBB, the Gumball 3000 Foundation is working with FBB to integrate Gumball work experience and internships into their student programme. Furthermore, the Foundation wishes to offer performance-based incentives for FBB students including the opportunity to play for the Gumball All-Stars in its annual charity football matches involving a number of celebrities and ex-professional football players.
