In an amazing start to 2020, Hallam FC has teamed up with Bands FC for two fantastic celebrations of the close connection between football and music, write Ian Jones and John Wiseman for www.hallamfc.uk.
Founded by Nick Fraser and Mark Liptrott, Bands FC is based on a simple idea which came to the guys in July of 2019- “Bands as Football Teams, Football Teams as Bands”. Bands FC now has over 400 badges, has exhibited at the National Football Museum in Manchester, and sponsors Chorley-based junior side Briscall FC.
Bands FC have also raised huge sums of money for charitable causes including the Sheffield Children’s Hospital and for children affected by overseas conflicts. Read about their story and their mission on their website Bands FC
