Bands FC are the social media sensation taking Twitter by storm (nearly 20k followers at the time of writing after and growing fast) combining two major passions in life - football and music - and raising money for charity. The idea is simple: combine football team badges with band logos. Or, in the words of Bands FC: ‘Bands as football teams/Football teams as bands’.
We’ll be showing the complete set of designs in our Star Café for a week-long exhibition starting on the 7th January.
There’ll be an opportunity to buy some of the prints and also some enamel badges with all the proceeds going to various carefully selected charities and sports projects. One such project sees Bands FC sponsorship for a junior boys and girls team. Another project sees Bands FC produce enamel badges of their Frightened Rabbit/Hearts crossover, with all the money going towards a charity in the memory of Scott Hutchison, the band’s singer. Enamel badges for Camera Obscura, The Charlatans and Public Service
Broadcasting will also go into production for charities of their choice.
Keep an eye on our website for updates on special events taking place throughout the week but in the meantime, here are some of our favourite designs so far.
Check them out for yourselves @_Bands_FC
