About Checkatrade

Checkatrade helps combat the UK's rogue trader problem by continuously vetting and monitoring local tradespeople such as builders, plumbers and electricians as well as service providers. Founded in 1998, Checkatrade has grown to employ 270 staff and has more than 26,000 genuine trade members, growing by an average of 400 new members every month. Over the past 12 months, Checkatrade-certified tradesmen carried out a combined estimated total of £2.7bn worth of work, with complaints at just one in 200 on workmanship, compared to the national average of one in five.

We’re proud to celebrate and reward lower league football and our sponsorship of the Checkatrade Trophy gives us an opportunity to invest in the beautiful game. After the success of last year’s competition, including an incredible showpiece final at Wembley, Checkatrade is proud to support football across the country again and we’re delighted that this year’s Checkatrade Trophy prize fund is another record breaking sum.
