SportsTech entrepreneurs sign Graeme Le Saux as non-executive director and secure £1m cash investment to fund national expansion

Former England international Graeme Le Saux has joined MyLocalPitch as a non-executive director.

MyLocalPitch, an online sports booking platform, has also recently become the first London-based SportsTech business to raise more than £1 million, funding its ambitious plans for national expansion.

Launched in 2014 by London-based entrepreneurs Jamie Foale and Sandford Loudon, MyLocalPitch was initially created to help book pitches for 11-a-side football matches in the capital.

The service now offers a unique platform, giving sports fans easy access to over 4000 facilities, enabling them to find a pitch, court or venue near them and book and pay for it online.

MyLocalPitch launched an app in April 2017 and has expanded its network beyond London to include both Manchester and Dublin.

On Le Saux’s appointment, Foale said: “Graeme is a passionate supporter of all forms of grassroots sports and his addition to the board is a major asset to the business.

“Armed with the proceeds from our successful fundraising, 2018 promises to be an extremely exciting year for MyLocalPitch as we build on the fantastic progress the team has made.”
