In December 2020, University Campus of Football Business (UCFB) became an official club partner of Hashtag United.

The partnership sees both organisations working together on the Hashtag United Academy 2020 series, which is watched by hundreds of thousands of viewers on YouTube. Participants will be seen sporting the UCFB logo as they battle it out for a contract with the Essex Senior League club.

The club was founded in 2016 by YouTube star Spencer Owen to play in a series of exhibition matches, however, the team’s popularity, coupled with Spencer’s online presence, soon meant the club applied for entry to The FA National League System. The club currently play in the Essex Senior League Premier Division and have ambitions to climb the English football pyramid.

Hashtag United joins a long and illustrious list of institutions that UCFB is proud to call partners, including The Football Association, The Rugby Football League and Kick It Out.
