We have partnered with football-focused Sonar Financial Services to continue changing the game for young people in London

Bloomsbury Football exists to provide all young people with the opportunity to get on the pitch and experience the life-changing power of football, regardless of ability to pay or play. Our financial assistance model provides bursaries for young people to ensure that price is never a barrier to accessing high-quality football training with qualified coaches.

As a charity, our partners and community are so important. We are so grateful to the organisations and generous individuals who believe in our work changing the game for young people in London.

We are excited that this year, we have partnered with Sonar Financial Services to provide bursary places for young people in our Academy. As a football focused financial advice firm, it is amazing┬áthat Sonar recognises the importance of supporting football at the grassroots level. Sonar understands the unique financial needs of footballers, and maybe one day some of our players will progress into a career as a professional footballer and require Sonar’s services!

So much of what we do at Bloomsbury Football is thanks to the amazing support of our partners. We are so excited to be partnered with Sonar to fund bursary places for Academy players. Together, we can continue to change the game for young people in London.

-Charlie Hyman, Founder & CEO of Bloomsbury Football


We are extremely fortunate to work with some of the biggest names in English football and wanted to partner with an organisation helping children through football-based initiatives.

We have seen first-hand the fantastic work Bloomsbury do and we are very excited to be able to assist children receive the highest quality training over the next 12 months via their Academy Bursary programme.
