“We've invested the time to secure the right team and ensured each of their values align with our vision for the future of The National Lottery. Together with our partners, the Advisory Board will add valuable insight and strategic counsel as we approach the final stage of the application.”
The Advisory Board aims to support Sisal with strategic counsel in its application for the licence. The Milan-headquartered company has previously announced its partnership with Barnardo’s and has teamed up with BT as part of its application.

“Our Lottery is a treasured institution that generates substantial funds for good causes across the UK. Sisal's proven track record of managing and growing lotteries in Italy, Turkey and Morocco makes them a strong contender and I look forward to working with them and the rest of the Advisory Board as the application progresses.”
