In just 10 years, FC United of Manchester has become one of the most talked about non-league clubs in football, generating regional, national and worldwide interest. FC is democratically owned and run by in excess of 4000 members, a club with one voice and one principle goal - to give football back to the supporters and the community.

With a wide range of sponsorship, promotional and advertising opportunities structured to suit a variety of needs and budgets - we offer a unique opportunity for business, organisations and individuals to support our aspirations. These include expanding our community initiatives and outreach programmes, and assisting our ambitious plans to run and develop our very own brand new community stadium Broadhurst Park in Moston, North Manchester.

The stadium is a 4000+ capacity facility, recently completed to bring together our previous operations under one roof, creating a home for our fans, as well as a function room and other sporting facilities.
