Football media producer Copa90 has secured £1.75m of investment from alternative finance provider Growth Lending, to support its growth plans.

Growth Lending opted to invest after witnessing the fast growth of Copa90 in recent years, as well as the company’s “exceptional management demonstrated throughout Covid-19”.

The investment provides Copa90 with working capital, to accelerate existing and future projects.

Copa90 has a reach of 80+ million fans worldwide for its behind-the-scenes interviews with footballers; videos of football challenges; and football documentaries (such as the popular Derby Days series, pictured) covering players, teams and football culture.

Stephen May, chief financial officer at Copa90, said: “We could see the growth potential in our business, but needed to fund the working capital required to fulfil that potential. Strong relationships with key decision makers at Growth Lending has meant we’ve developed a collaborative partnership, which will be instrumental as we take our next steps.”

Julian Hornby, principal at Growth Lending added: “It’s great to be able to continue working with the team at Copa90 and support its ongoing growth journey. Our investment will fuel several exciting projects this summer, as part of the busy sporting calendar, so we’re looking forward to watching them come to fruition.”
