BBC Media Action, the BBC’s international charity, has launched its first-ever prize draw, for the chance to meet the BBC Match of the Day team in Salford and see the show in action while supporting media and communication for good around the world.

This unique opportunity offers exclusive insight into how the world’s longest-running football programme is made, with an up-close look at the latest Premier League action.

The winner and a guest will start backstage with a studio tour, meet the experts as they prepare their analysis for the programme, have their photo taken with host and former England striker Gary Lineker himself, and then watch the show go out live to the nation.

Proceeds from the draw will go to support BBC Media Action’s work in more than 20 countries around the world in media and communication for development.

These projects and programmes support independent media while addressing poverty, improving health, bridging societal divides and helping people survive in times of crisis – including adapting to the increasing impacts of climate change.

From broadcasting that tackles gender-based violence in refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar, to mentoring independent and trusted radio stations in Iraq, to helping farmers and fishermen share solutions for adapting to the changing East African climate, BBC Media Action’s work helps change and save lives.

“We are grateful to BBC’s Match of the Day for this one-of-a-kind opportunity for our supporters to have this behind-the-scenes look at Premier League action, while supporting a truly worthwhile cause. Our work in media and communication for good reaches more than 100 million people each year in some of the world’s poorest and most fragile societies, helping them and their communities to be healthier, more inclusive and more prosperous.” (Caroline Nursey, Chief Executive Officer of BBC Media Action)
