Galaxy is excited to announce that it will be the first official sponsor of the Real Bedford Ladies FC.

Based in Bedford, England, and owned by bitcoin investor and podcast host Peter McCormack, Real Bedford represents a success story in the making for the community. With Bitcoin education at its center and a big dream to make it to the Premier League one day, the football club does not lack ambition and innovation. Galaxy is excited to back this dream and wants to bring similar success to the women’s game. Real Bedford Ladies will help grow women’s football and create an inclusive environment that celebrates and promotes female players. Galaxy is honored to support the club's expansion into the female side of the sport as part of our broader commitment to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion within and beyond the digital asset industry. 

“Our industry is very much a work in progress. We here at Galaxy are firmly committed to championing equality on and off the pitch,” said Mike Novogratz, Founder and CEO of Galaxy. “This collaboration represents an exciting opportunity to join forces with a brand that shares our commitment to excellence and empowering individuals. Together, we’ll drive the game forward while promoting inclusivity and innovation.” 

Real Bedford Ladies has 50 senior players and 200 girls aged 7-18 playing for the club this coming season. As part of the sponsorship, Galaxy’s contribution will be used to buy new playing and training kits for the team, cover expenses for senior players, and support a hardship fund to ensure that money is not a barrier to young girls playing football.

“I want to thank Galaxy for supporting my vision for growing the female side of the game here in Bedford," said Peter McCormack, Chairman of Real Bedford. “The ladies game is growing fast but investment in supporting women’s football is inconsistent outside of the professional game. A modern football club of any level must champion and advocate for women’s football and with the support of Galaxy we can invest in growing the game here in Bedford."
