Participation in team sports improves self-esteem, mental discipline and social skills
Busby AFC make training and development fun. We encourage our players to support each other and we celebrate individual achievements and success as a whole.
Although exercise and sport in general can have an incredible effect on people’s mental health and wellbeing, research has shown that there are more impactful mental health benefits of team sports.
In addition to wellbeing and the physical benefits of team sports, there are also valuable life skills and lessons young people can learn including manners, respect and boundaries on and off the pitch; practising persistence, meeting new friends and boosting confidence.
We’d love for you to get involved and see the positive impact football can have on players.
Get involved in grassroots sport and remove economic barriers making sport affordable and accessible for all
Sponsorship of a grassroots sport delivers a much higher return on investment than traditional advertising. This is because sponsorship allows your business to become directly involved in activities that are highly valued by local consumers.
Consumers are known to form strong positive associations with sponsors who support the development of grassroots sport and contribute to the local community. With eight out of ten consumers preferring to believe in what a company does rather than what it says, it’s easy to see why many businesses are choosing to sponsor amateur football clubs like ours as a way of maximising their marketing return.
By directly supporting us, you’re helping to remove economic barriers — making sport accessible, affordable and inclusive for all.

The Club Today
Busby Amateur Football Club was founded in 1980 by Alan Bruce. At the time Alan realised that there was a gap for locals to play amateur football.
If players were from the Busby area, they would either have to travel to Eaglesham or Newton Mearns so Alan decided to form the new local team – Busby AFC.
To this day the club has gone from strength to strength. The club now boasts three club sections – Amateurs, Youths and Juniors. We have children from nursery (4 years old) right up until our Amateurs and over 35s sections. We’re one of the fastest growing grassroots football clubs in Scotland with over 250 players! We also have a newly introduced girl's section which has over 80 active participants and is expanding exponentially.
We play in various leagues across the West of Scotland and all we want to do is allow the players a platform to participate in physical activity at a recreational activity whilst promoting fun and healthy exercise practices.
In February 2020, Busby Amateur Football Club became a registered charity with the Scottish regulator OSCR – our charity number is SC049935.
Busby AFC is a club at the heart of the community focused on giving back where we can!
With membership and crowd attendances rising, we have ambitious plans to continue to develop the infrastructure at the club.
Naturally, we want to support our sponsors and build them in to our club on a strategic level — allowing all of our partners to benefit from our ever-improving facilities, expanding audience and our community involvement.
