Supporting Futures FC: Building Community Through Football


At Brainstorm Business Solutions, supporting small businesses and local initiatives is at the heart of what we do. One such initiative that we are proud to sponsor is Futures FC, a local football team with a mission that goes beyond the pitch.



A Different Kind of Football Experience
Futures FC was founded in 2016 by Phil Carr and Rob Lawson, two friends who saw a significant need in our community. Working in social services, Phil and Rob recognized that many men wanted to enjoy football but struggled to integrate into mainstream football environments due to existing conditions and attitudes. Their solution? Create a football community that is welcoming, non-judgmental, and supportive of connection, growth, and positivity.



Building a Welcoming Community
Since its inception, Futures FC has welcomed over 120 individuals into its service. The team is a founding member of the FA-affiliated “Flourish League,” a mental health league dedicated to promoting well-being through sport. Futures FC has also formed partnerships with various supporting agencies, offering advice and opportunities to its members.

At Futures FC, the approach is simple: see people, welcome people, and let them play and connect in a safe environment. Everything else follows naturally from these experiences.



Our Contribution: A New Website for Futures FC
To help Futures FC share their incredible story and grow their community, we built a new website for them. The site is a hub for sharing their achievements and fostering connections within the community. It provides information about their mission, upcoming matches, and ways to get involved.

We believe that by supporting Futures FC, we are helping to create a space where people feel safe, welcome, and part of something larger than themselves. It’s not just about football; it’s about community, connection, and positive mental health.



Looking Ahead
Our aim is to continue supporting Futures FC in their mission to provide a safe and welcoming environment for everyone who wants to enjoy the game of football. We are excited to see them grow and thrive, and we invite you to join us in supporting this fantastic cause.

Visit the Futures FC website to learn more about their mission, upcoming events, and how you can get involved. Let’s keep building a stronger, more inclusive community together.

Cheers lads!
