Sparkhill United FC was officially set-up in March 2006, although the idea of setting up the team had floated around for a short while before.The team was set-up from scratch by the hard work of a group of friends. Players were attracted mainly from Sparkhill and Sparkbrook. The majority of the squad are players that enjoyed playing football in local parks such as Sparkhill Park and The Ackers (Sparkbrook) but had no opportunities to play competitively. The main purpose for the creation of the team was to help young people from Sparkhill and Sparkbrook get involved in sporting activity as opportunities in these areas are limited and a regular sporting activity in many ways helps reduce the chance of these youngsters indulging in juvenile and anti social behaviour.
The team has been kindly funded by a number of organisations in recent times from The Big Boost, the Sparkhill Youth Forum, the Red Nose Day Community Cash and most prominently the Springfield Community Chest. We have also had a number of kind sponsors over the years from Al-Faisals (www.alfaisal.co.uk), The Purple Rooms (www.thepurplerooms.com), Titel Commnications (www.titel.co.uk), Shakur Aid (www.shakuraid.org), Dreamland Beds (www.dreamlandbeds.co.uk), Torneoz (http://torneoz.com/), MYMED Pharma (www.mymedpharma.com/), Sweet Chillies (www.sweetchillies.co.uk/) and and most recently Cravings (https://www.facebook.com/Cravings-116497138336/).
