Fence, I, and maybe a few other SpoFites, are officially proud new owners of a bouncing baby football club.: Ebbsfleet United are about to set sail. (Click on "NEWSDESK" at the top of the page).

How do I get involved in Pittsburgh, Pa, USA?

On the web, nobody knows you're in Pittsburgh.

How do I get involved in Pittsburgh, Pa, USA? First step is to go to and sign up. Then I guess you just follow the steps through. And from the FAQ: “I love English football, but I do not live in England. Can I still join?” Absolutely. Overseas members are positively encouraged. This will also help the club’s scouting network.

You can pay the 35 GBP through PayPal, but with the weak USD, it'll set you back about $75.00. I signed up last week all the way from Los Angeles!

These fucking American owners coming in and buying up our football clubs... I KNEW the Glaziers were just the tip of the iceberg. [Just kidding - congratualtions to you all]

JJ, At least us Americans won't be whining that the club is in the Conference/Kent/Southeast/Near London/Not In Walking Distance From My House. I almost think 25% of the MyFC forum thought they could get into the director's box for free.

Texan, is one of the conditions of ownership to be able to use the "Kickin' Chicks" as your development team? Congrats, guys. Have fun with it.

*L* dwalters, the only club that would have fit the bill for me is Oxford United (I can see the ground from my house just about), but I wouldn't have paid £35 for them... or even a share of £35.
