The Infinity Football project is all about designing a sustainable, community focused football stadium for the collaborators Infinity Initiatives F.C. in Audenshaw, Tameside. This project works to enhance individuals’ mental health and well-being, empowering them and keeping them intellectually and physically active through football. We will explore designs for a football stadium to accommodate around 1000 seats, along with some facilities for the comfort of the players and staff.

Infinity is working in partnership with the community in the Tameside area of Greater Manchester on a project called Infinity Initiatives Football Club. Infinity was founded in 2015 to assist persons who were caught in the "revolving door" of support, moving in and out of agencies or falling between ever increasing thresholds. Soon after, they expanded the team members, offering various services and Infinity as part of the platform for the community, particularly across Greater Manchester and North Wales. The members comprise an experienced specialist and multi-skilled team associated with volunteers and clients. The main strategic aim is to provide a safe and welcoming environment for individuals and to offer bespoke support without timeframes and thresholds.

To address the challenges frequently associated with the areas' high unemployment, poverty, and conviction rates, IIFC offers support and campaigns to bring young boys together by offering communal football to those who might benefit health-wise. Health and well-being are significant concerns in our project, and physical activity is proven to improve both physical and mental health. We want to make community football available to everyone, but especially to those who are most at risk in the community, those who would benefit from being on a team in terms of their physical and mental health, and those who may have previously encountered obstacles.

Members of the community of different backgrounds unite, sit on various panels and groups throughout Tameside, which allows them to keep up to date with local developments but also provides a forum for them to be the voice of their clients and champions for local system change. Over the past 18 months, IIFC has been working with partners to identify gaps and opportunities and has been able to support young men in the following areas:
• Asylum seekers and refugees
• Individuals in temporary and supported accommodation
• Individuals struggling with mental health
• Those who are socially isolated
