Exclusive Networks Charity Football 2023

For the past five years, we at Exclusive Networks UK have built up a Charity Football event for the channel we call home. This year, we welcomed 34 teams – as well as several eager Exclusive Networks teams – from across the globe, cementing the Exclusive Networks Charity Football event as a true channel event that allows us all to come together, build relationships and, most importantly, raise money for charities that need it most.

This year, that charity was Alton Food Banks which is close to all our hearts here at Exclusive, having been chosen by our staff as our charity to support in 2023. We’re delighted to announce that we raised a huge £38,252.57 in total this year, and want to once again thank our vendors, partners and the incredible channel for helping us make that happen.

Speaking of support, we were joined on the day by 34 of our closest vendors and partners, including Assured Data Protection, Axians (Nouveau), Blue Cube Security Ltd, Bytes Software Services, CC, Cybanetix, Exabeam, ExtraHop, F5, Forescout, Fortinet, Ignition Technology, KHIPU Networks, Mimecast, Netskope, Nomios UK&I, Palo Alto, SentinelOne, Softcat, Switchshop, Tanium UK Ltd, Tenable, Thales, Vizst Technology and WWT.

We’d also like to give a special thank you to those that travelled far and wide to help us raise money for the food bank, including reps from our Irish partners and vendors, as well as Chris Scanlan, President and Chief Commercial Officer at Extrahop, who flew in all the way from the US to play in the Extrahop team.

Finally, we’d like to tip our hat to WWT, the winners of this year’s tournament! There was plenty of fierce competition on the day, and we’re already excited to see if they can defend the title in 2024.

That’s it from us until next year. There are plenty of videos and photos that capture the spirit of the day right here, and don’t forget to follow #EXNFooty to see even more glimpses of a brilliant day for the UK channel.
