What is Hashtag United?

Hashtag United is a semi-professional football club set up in 2016 by YouTube star Spencer Owen and his brother.

They set up the club and started playing matches in memory of a childhood friend.

After recording their matches and sharing them online they quickly became well known and soared in popularity – they now have official sponsors and play regularly at Haringey Borough’s stadium in Tottenham.

Toby explained himself: “They’re very social media focused. Everything is on YouTube, Instagram and Twitter.”
