Football’s First versus Football’s Future

Football’s First met Football’s Future today as #theworldsfirst met Youtube creator team Rebel FC for a fan match and production at Sheffield FC’s stadium. First managed by England legend Rio Ferdinand and with over 400,000 views in their first match, Rebel FC consists of some of Youtube’s most popular stars including Calfreezy, Mike Fox, SV2 and Reev

Today’s fixtue against Sheffield FC is Rebel FC’s first against a team outside of the Youtube community, making it fitting to be against football’s first club. Both teams are looking forward to releasing the viral content to fans next week - not only showing where the game kicked off but highlighting the power of football to unite people from right across the world - from the first to the future.

Sheffield FC Chairman, Richard Tims stated: "It’s been a super entertaining fixture and day with the Rebel FC team. We always aim to pioneer and by uniting football’s heritage with some of football’s greatest online creators, we're doing just that. We’re really excited to release the game online, giving our international community the opportunity to watch Sheffield FC in action and also reaching out to a new fan base, engaging with football’s first club and having their support for times to come!"
