#JoinTheBraves and become part of something truly unique.
The Caledonian Braves are Scotland's newest and possibly most ambitious football club. Our aim is to create an online community of fans, who working together will drive the club forward into a new and innovative generation.
We have developed an app that will change fan engagement, making you the heart of the football club. Along with likeminded, ambitious fans from around the world, your voice counts.
With your club at your fingertips, not only will you be able to make key decisions that influence all aspects of the club, though you will be propelled into the dressing room, onto the training pitch and into the stands as Caledonian Braves' most important stakeholder - the fan!
The first club in Scottish football to launch an app aimed at giving fans the power, you will have your club in your hands.
A LITTLE ABOUT US
Caledonian Braves club is something unique, something that born from an idea to create a club, that will be run by the community from all over the world. In 2017 Edusport academy club, comprised of young French footballers who came to Glasgow to learn English and improve their football skills, won the Scottish South League (lowest tier) and became the first club ever to be promoted into the Lowland League.
However, guys who came over from the academy weren’t quite ready to go and play at that level yet. Decision to separate the first team from the academy was taken and because we needed money to attract players and to pay them, we set up ourfootballclub.com.
The idea was to use this funding platform, to try to sell memberships to the general public. As members, they could take an active influence in all decisions pertaining to the club – one early idea was that we’d change the name and that the members could vote on that, which is exactly how we became Caledonian Braves.
Actually, there was a whole lot more to this than simply raising money for the club – it was the opportunity to create something unique and use the power of football to bring people together in a way that has never been tried before. Initially, we have more than 800 members signed up from 35 different countries, realizing that ambition to create the first football club that’s managed by an online global football community.
With the launch of the app we are ready to revisit that… launch app, documentary.
And that’s where we need your support…

However the programme will achieve its full potential if we are able to fill the gap of budget required.
The total project cost comes to just over £25,000. We already have invested at least £15,000 to the project from revenues generated by Edusport Academy.
Funds will be used:
- App improvements – app is released and already available, however there is so much more that we are planning to deploy to get you as close as possible to the team. For the further improvements of the app we are planning to invest at least £3,000 raised.
- Marketing – £2,000 will be spent on marketing and advertising to achieve wider audience and attract more people from all over the world to join and run this club together. That way, we will get opportunity to attract attention of potential sponsors and hopefully obtain some more funding.
- Infrastructure, recruitment - In order to achieve our primary goal - promotion to League 2 - we need to invest in our squad and to our future, therefore with the help of yours we would like to use £5,000 raised on this campaign for player wages and club infrastructure improvements.
