Poker pro & coach Felix Schneiders is an ambassador of the MuchBetter e-wallet.“I have been a Poker professional for over 15 years now, streaming, and coaching Poker on Twitch for more than 7 years. I know from my experiences as a long time Poker player how important it is to be able to access, withdraw, deposit, and move funds quickly to wherever they are needed so I am happy to have a tool like MuchBetter.
My community and me are using MuchBetter on a regular basis with all the features that it offers. Especially the fact that you have a free prepaid card with fraud protection through the app makes MuchBetter super appealing to Poker players who have to make regular transactions or be able to access and send or receive funds. Personally, I love being able to spend money I won at a Poker game directly through MuchBetter – contactless!”

Former 2016 Italian Rio Olympian, Guido “The Gladiator” Vianello, was born into a family of tennis players. In his younger years, he stumbled into boxing when his curiosity was piqued about the boxing gym based in front of his tennis club. He wondered in once and never left.
In 2018 he turned professional, signing with Top Rank Boxing owned by the Hall of Fame Promoter Bob Arum. He has 9 professional fights with 8 victories all ending with a swift KO for his opponents.
As the current number 1 heavyweight in Italy, Guido is still at the beginning of his career.
Guido told MuchBetter : “From the first day I started boxing, I wanted to go to the Olympics and then become Heavyweight World Champion. One goal is achieved and now I’m working hard for the second one. I fight in the United States, as well as England and I train between Rome and London. That’s why I was very excited to become an Ambassador of MuchBetter. Their solutions fit perfectly for individuals who travel a lot, that could utilise the safety and simplicity of the payments app.”
Manchester-based Connor Lynch began boxing at just 5 years old and was introduced to the challenging sport by his Dad when they attended matches at his uncle’s boxing club. So far in Connor’s young and fledgling career he’s had six professional fights with a clear streak of wins. Connor’s Manager and Trainer is former professional Boxer, Kieran Farrell.
“From a young age I loved going to my uncle’s boxing club, so it wasn’t long before my dad started taking me to the boxing gym” – Connor told MuchBetter.
Talking about the future, Connor said – “My focus now is to continue to work hard and push myself to my fullest. At the end of 2021, I’m hoping to have the chance to compete in my first title fight.”
Crosby Cricket Club was formed on the Isle of Man in 1946, originally by a group of villagers who were seeking something to do outside of the football season. The original team has grown over the years, and they now have two senior weekend teams, 4 senior evening teams, and junior teams at U9, U11, U13 and Under 15’s. Several players are also part of the Island teams and compete in competitions off-Island.
With so many teams there are few days between May and September when the club is out of action, which demands a huge commitment from coaches and players alike. Crosby is a friendly club, with players ranging from 6 to 60 years of age and is an important part of the village, where most of its members are based. MuchBetter is proud to support this local community Cricket Club and we look forward to watching their 2021 season unfold.
Founded in 2016, the junior academy of Douglas Athletic Football Club, also known as DAFC Juniors, is a club which has continued to go from strength to strength.
Based in the heart of Douglas, the club started with only 8 children and 2 coaches, but today is the fastest growing junior football club on the Isle of Man, with over 100 children playing across 14 teams, all proudly representing the club in the local Isle of Man Junior Football League. This is only made possible through the dedication and commitment of the many volunteers, including 15 FA qualified coaches who help the children to play the game they love in a safe and friendly environment.
‘As a local football club we continue to strive to provide the local community with excellent opportunities for children, where they can be part of a club which is safe, fun and where they can enjoy playing football. Everyone at DAFC is incredibly grateful to the team at MuchBetter for their support and we look forward to watching all our teams wear their MuchBetter pink kits with pride this season’
DAFC Chairman Stephen Cowan.
Being the only female side on the Isle of Man, Vagabonds Ladies RUFC joined the UK league structure in 2007 in a bid to play both more frequently and at a higher level. After being placed initially in a developmental league they quickly worked their way up the league structure and currently play in National Championship 1 North West.
Vagabonds are proud to be ambassadors for women’s rugby, Vagabonds RUFC and the Isle of Man. Ladies rugby is a fully inclusive sport and is open to girls and women of all ages, shapes and sizes – often players are new to rugby as it is only a developing sport at school level
The core rugby values of teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship are evident every time this team steps onto the field of play and in their conduct off it. Vagabonds Ladies are always heaving involved in club events to raise money for local charities including playing in the annual new year Front Row Union Challenge match as well as hosting our annual ladies day raising money for Women’s Refuge.
Following a series of league wins they were awarded Team of the Year at the Isle of Mans Sports Awards.
At the tender age of 19, Marta is a wonderfully dynamic sports woman who currently ranks 50th in the world of professional tennis.
Marta herself was born into the world of tennis, and was heavily influenced by her mum and uncle, who both played professionally. Not only does Kostyuk have a bright future ahead of her in tennis, but she also has many years of achievements up her sleeve at her young age.
In her early years, she competed at the Orange Bowl in Florida and came out winning the 14 and under division. The following year, she won both the singles and doubles at Les Petits As in Tarbes, France. Continuing with her winning streak, Kostyuk had a successful year in 2017. She won the Australian Open Girls’ Singles Championships, and she also became the youngest Ukrainian to win a professional women’s singles title at the ITF tournament in Dunakeszi (Hungary). Marta topped it off by winning the Girls year end ITF Junior Masters in Chengdu, China. In 2018, Marta made her Grand Slam debut into the Australian Open by receiving a wildcard entry into the qualifying, where she then defeated Peng Shuai in the first round, making Kostyuk the youngest player to win a main-draw match at the Australian Open in Melbourne since Martina Hingis in 1996.
MuchBetter are believers in supporting women in sports and are excited to partner with Marta in her journey to the top in 2022.
