We are delighted to confirm Ignite Sport UK and Oxford City FC have merged to form a stronger and closer collaboration. This means that the structure, coaching support, management, and administration pf Oxford City FC teams from U7 to U16 will be provided by Ignite Sport UK.    

Players and teams who were playing for Ignite Academy will now play for Oxford City FC. Having everyone play for our flagship club will improve overall identity and strengthen  junior pathway programmes. While having Ignite Sport UK provide the structure around delivery, coaching and administration will provide a professional system. Together this will create a clearer structure that will benefit everyone and create an environment in which coaches and players can achieve even better outcomes.
