FC United of Manchester is a community football club based in Moston, North Manchester. We have a principled commitment to be of benefit to our local community and to work with everyone in the community through an inclusive ethos that resonates with our membership. We are passionate and understanding of the wider role that football clubs can play in assisting communities local to them. Our community programme is varied and not exclusive to football or sport - ‘we do things differently’ and our community programme is evidence of this. FC United - Football & Community United.
Big Coat Day has been a regular, and hugely popular, feature of the club’s community work since 2005 and down the years the club has worked with a number of charities to help those most in need in the Manchester area. The annual initiative collects spare warm clothing, toiletries and other items so that it can be distributed to those who need it most – across the City and further afield.
