We are the Badgers in the Community (BitC); the official community arm of Baguley Athletic FC.

We believe in the immense power of our football club to transform people’s lives for the better.   Together we engage, inspire and unite the whole community.

Badgers in the Community aims to REACH IN by organising events to bring the community together.  We will REACH OUT by supporting local businesses and the local economy by giving back. Finally we will REACH UP by increasing our offering within the local community by working with larger organisations to improve the community

Though we are embedded within the ethos of Baguley Athletic FC, we are financially independent from the football club. We rely on fundraising activities, donations, sponsorships and grants to do the work we do and every penny we raise goes to developing new opportunities for those who need it most.

Key Objectives

1. Proactively engage with the local community
2. Unite the community and tackle local issues where needed
3. Partner with local businesses and charities
4. Increase the awareness of the club on a local scale
5. Improve the health and well-being of the community
6. Offer fun and engaging events for all
Build a sizeable fanbase for the first team

The weekend of 16th/17th October, our Badgers in the Community Initiative will donate £10 for every goal scored by our teams across all competitions.

Local charity Wythenshawe Foodbank will be the first recipients of our Goal Match Funding.

Visit their website https://wythenshawe.foodbank.org.uk/ to see the remarkable things they are doing in the community.
Better yet why not make a donation - we will be collecting food donations at all our games this weekend (just hand in to the team manager)

Thank you for your support!
