Our initial target of £3,000 will help us to run this fantastic club for the rest of the 2016 season. If we reach that milestone, we will then look to raise further funds for other important projects at the club.
If you’ve always dreamed of being on the board of a Premier League club, here’s your chance…
Ok, it may not be the Barclays Premier League, but Bayangol FC of the Mongolian Premier League need your help with a unique project that is using football for positive social change and taking a stand against discrimination and corruption in football. It’s like a real-life game of Football Manager except it’s changing the lives of people on the other side of the world.
Bayangol FC was founded in 2013 as a club for the everyday people of Mongolia - a club that would have an ethical and charitable ethos, helping people who wouldn’t otherwise have a chance to express and empower themselves through football in a nurturing environment. Our players’ backgrounds vary vastly from students in Ulan Bator to players whose families still live traditional nomadic lifestyles.
As a club we stand against discrimination and corruption and have tackled both head on. We combatted football fraud when we crowd funded to refund a young Mongolian footballer, Ochiroo, who was tricked by a fake agent and lost a life-changing sum of money. Now he is back playing football with a smile on his face.
At the start of the season Bayangol signed three Nigerian footballers - one was the victim of player trafficking, the other two had been cut adrift by other clubs who let them become illegal immigrants and refused to pay them.
Bayangol FC is run by a small group of committed football fans from all over the world, from the United Kingdom to the USA to New Zealand. We’re more than a club, we’re a football community.
