About the club
Saltire Thistle Football Club is a Glasgow based inclusive football team that welcomes members of the LGBTQ+ community and promotes competitive football alongside creating a safe space whereby we look after each otherâ€™s well-being. Here are some key points about the club and its mission:
Inclusive and Competitive Football: Saltire Thistle FC offers competitive football opportunities but not at the expense of players’ mental and physical well-being. Inclusivity is a core value, and the club is open to individuals regardless of their skill level, ability, or fitness.
Everyone is welcome.
LGBTQ+ Community: The club was created to provide a safe space for members of the LGBTQ+ community to participate in football. Inclusivity is not just a buzzword; it’s an integral part of the clubâ€™s identity.
History of Success: Saltire Thistle FC has a long history of national success on the pitch and lifelong friendships off it.
Sense of Belonging: Many members join Saltire Thistle FC after a period of not being involved in sports, which can often be due to a lack of belonging. Saltire Thistle FC aims to create an environment where individuals can grow and become more comfortable with themselves, without changing who they are.
