At HSBC, we are partner to five Olympic sports – golf, rugby, tennis, badminton and football, and have recently entered the world of esports.
We believe in the spirit of partnership and use our expertise and international scale to help sports grow and reach larger audiences, something we’ve done for over 50 years.
Our grassroots programmes bring some of the biggest sports in the world to children and young people, and help to identify and support talented athletes.
