In 2007 myself, with a group of former Leicester Panther players and their partners, organised a charity game between the Leicester Panthers "Old Boys" and the Loughborough University Aces.
This turned out to be one of the biggest British American Football games in over 10 years, with nearly 10,000 fans attending the "Matt Hampson Bowl" 0'14 at the Leicester Tigers Stadium. The event raised over £40,000 for the Matt Hampson Trust and from this game, the idea of Football America UK was born and our business commenced.
We are now the official UK distributors for Riddell, Riddell Collectables, Xenith, Wilson Footballs, X-Tech, X-Road, Schutt, Rogers Training Equipment, Fisher Athletics products and more. This position gives us the largest range of products available in the UK. We also work with some of the biggest suppliers in the US to source the most favoured brands such as Nike, Under Armour and Adidas.
