Hashtag United are a one-of-a-kind football and esports club, based in Essex, England. Formed in 2016 by Spencer Owen as a group of friends playing exhibition games, for two years they travelled the world and even played at Wembley Stadium in front of thousands of fans, with the whole adventure played out on YouTube. In 2018 the club moved into the world of non-league football, entering at the 10th tier, and won their league at the first attempt. After two curtailed seasons due to Covid, the club’s points tally saw them awarded another promotion and the men now play in the 8th tier, the Isthmian League North. In 2020 the club merged with a local women’s team who now play in the FA Women’s National League Division One South East, the 4th tier of the women’s pyramid. The club also competes as an esports team and are represented at the highest level in competitive FIFA gaming.
