Behind the Goals – Chris Ewing of ‘Our Football Club’

Date: 5th March 2018

We welcomed Chris Ewing of EduSport Academy onto the podcast to discuss his revolutionary ‘Our Football Club’ proposals. 

Football fans across the world are being given the chance to run their very own club thanks to a pioneering project launched by Scottish Lowland League club Edusport Academy.

Former professional footballer Chris Ewing currently owns Scotland’s youngest senior football club but is changing the structure to establish a new club separate from the academy.

For an annual membership of just £25, ‘Revolutionaries’ will gain unprecedented access to a senior club which has ambitions to reach the Scottish Premiership by 2025.

The ground-breaking ‘’ initiative will allow supporters across the globe to:
 Choose the team name
 Recommend signings
 Vote on the strip
 Elect board members for season 2018/19

When the new club reaches 10,000 members, £50,000 will be donated to grassroots football in Scotland with the membership deciding where the money should be channelled.

We invited Chris onto the Behind the Goals podcast to discuss his plans further. You can hear the podcast below or subscribe to future episodes on your preferred podcatcher here.
