The Purpose:

Our Critical Thinking campaign involves the creation of a Football Knowledge Exchange Programme between Redcar Athletic and The Football Collective

The partnership will see Researchers and Academics from the Football Collective family have the opportunity to have open and willing access to all facets of the football club. That, coupled with the links the club has for the major political and social pillars within its unique region sees a great opportunity for insightful and purposeful research linking community and football together.

Redcar Athletic FC will:

  • Make accessible all relevant research points/data required for researchers.
  • Share ‘Football Research’ and Research Papers from Football Collective members on its socials (as part of its commitment to developing the understanding of its fanbase)
  • Host the Football Collective Event on Community Football Clubs and Ownership @ Green Lane.
  • Work collaboratively to develop ideas to extend/widen the partnership (e.g. other partner clubs)
  • Provide the FC will suitable branding in stadia and on its assets (including ground board / website presence)

Football Collective will:

  • Recognise RAFC as its first Knowledge Exchange Programme Partner
  • Communicate to its membership base of the partnership and opportunity
  • Develop the Football Collective Event on Community Football Clubs and Ownership @ Green Lane
  • Provide RAFC with visual assets across its social and web presence
  • Provide RAFC with opportunities to present at other Football Collective events

This is a first of its kind partnership in football and makes use of the unique position (socially and economically) of our club.
