FC United To Prevent Suicide (FC United) is Scotland’s second team. Our goal is to unite the nation in helping one another to talk, listen and save lives. This page is jam-packed with resources and information that you can share in your own clubs and communities throughout the country. Together we can make a difference.
FC United Kit
The FC United kit is full of free resources, including leaflets, posters, and social media graphics, that can be downloaded by anybody for use by any individual, team, group, or organisation. You can also access the TALK and United To Prevent Suicide logos, which you may wish to incorporate onto your own strips, or in match programmes or stadium advertising…the list of uses is endless.
FC United has lived experience at its heart and the Meaningful Conversations films encourage people to talk, to seek help and help reduce the stigma of talking about suicide and mental health issues. Talking about suicide undermines stigma and makes it easier for people at risk to ask for help. Talking about our feelings can be the first step to asking for help. Starting conversations about suicide can be very difficult but offers hope to people thinking about suicide and can save lives.

Tony Bryson's Story
Ayr United FC Senior Youth Phase Coach Tony Bryson speaks about how suicide and his own mental health challenges have moulded him as a person, and how he uses his lived experience and the power of football to try and help others.
The FC United To Prevent Suicide team, more commonly known as FC United, was founded in August 2021. With the help of some famous faces, the team’s home kit was launched in September with the all-important TALK sponsorship.
Since then the team has gone from strength to strength with a number of high profile signings and more than 11,000 supporters on Twitter, helping to spread the word by proudly sporting their FC United shirts. Amateur clubs, community groups and players at football tournaments have also embraced FC United, including:
