United Glasgow Football Club is pleased to have been awarded the "Best Community Football Project" prize for the West Region through the SFA's Grassroots Awards programme. The award recognises a community based project which has succeeded in encouraging football for all; including creating opportunities for people from diverse underrepresented backgrounds, disadvantaged areas and has demonstrated strong growth in participation.

The award was presented at Firhill Stadium in advance of the Betfred Cup match between Partick Thistle and Stranraer on Saturday 29th July 2017. United Glasgow FC were represented by Alan White, Ibrahim Alrefai, Cathy Wood, Ari Silvera and Abdulmajet Nour.

Corrie Campbell, Club Development Manager for the SFA West Region, said; "This reward is a small recognition of the hard work and effort the club puts in to help others enjoy the game that we all love. On a personal note, I would like to thank United Glasgow for everything you all do for so many others, without volunteers like yourself football just wouldn't be the same in the Region."

Alan said; "None of the volunteers who keep our club going do so to win awards or for recognition but, nonetheless, it is always encouraging to win an award such as this to reinforce the continued value of what we do. We'll continue to run teams, football sessions and education events while the need exists and to move closer to our overall goal - a United Glasgow."

 

Sponsorship Lottery

United Glasgow Football Club is looking for new sponsors to help pay for training kits for each of their teams, as well as our drop-in sessions. We want to be able to kit out our teams in United Glasgow training kits so that everyone who trains together, trains United.

This is going to cost us around £500 for each team, and more if we are to get training kits to use at our drop-in sessions. Our kits are produced by our friends at Rage Sport in Italy, we can guarantee the kits are produced in a factory where the staff are paid a fair wage and the money that we pay is not going towards a multinational sports corporation with questionable ethics.

As such, we are opening a sponsorship lottery where we’re offering 30 individuals, groups and companies the chance to enter into a sponsorship lottery with United Glasgow FC for a donation of £50. (As a charity, donations to United Glasgow Football Club by businesses can be claimed back against corporation tax https://www.gov.uk/tax-limited-company-gives-to-charity/donating-money)

Once we have 30 names and confirmed donations, we’ll conduct a draw where we’ll pick three winners who’ll adorn the United Glasgow FC training kits for the next year. These sponsors will also be gifted a United Glasgow FC training kit for their own promotional purposes.

Everyone else who donates will be listed as a sponsor on United Glasgow FC’s website.

If you are interested in taking part in our sponsorship lottery, please email sponsorship@unitedglasgowfc.org.uk before August 31st 2017.

If there are any businesses who are interested in guaranteeing their place on a United Glasgow FC team’s training kit for £500, you can contact us directly. This can be put down as a pre-tax business expense (https://www.gov.uk/tax-limited-company-gives-to-charity/sponsoring-a-charity)
