The money will be distributed directly to clubs in most need of support through the National federations. With an agreement in place that all funding is ring-fenced for the clubs only.

The move comes in an effort to help support the sport that gave him so much, survive the toughest period in its history. Amateur clubs up and down the country have been forced to close their doors during the pandemic with little hope on the horizon.

Often the heart of a community, these clubs have a rich history and proven record in helping both adults and children cope with physical and mental struggles.

Anthony has also taken the opportunity to financially contribute to his own Amateur gym Finchley ABC and gift new training kit. A gift which will also be extended to the regional federations with one of Anthony’s major partners, Under Armour, offering to match Anthony’s financial offer in products.
