About Summer of Sport...


This year we are gearing up for an action packed summer of sport and cultural celebrations. With Andy Murray returning to Centre Court to defend his Wimbledon crown, Roy's boys up against the Samba stars in the World Cup in Brazil, our top athletes going for gold at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, and Rory McIlory leading the charge to retain the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, the National Lottery are behind them all the way. 

The National Lottery has helped changed the face of sport in the UK over the last 20 years. We've funded high performance athletes and world-class sporting venues and focused on boosting involvement in grassroot sports while improving community facilities. We've created champions and are investing in the stars of the future.

There’s also an exciting programme of cultural events to celebrate the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, supported by the National Lottery.
