What started as a simple idea, based largely around our own desire to see Europe, has developed in a business based around other fans’ desire to do the same. We have launched Homefans onto Europe’s leading equity Crowdfunding platform, Crowdcube!
WE WANT YOU and investors of all types to become part of our community and grow with us as we bring our new range of trips and experiences to the market.

The way we experience football and the world is changing and demand for experienced focused trips is increasing rapidly.
After suffering from standard match breaks, tourist tag for over 10 years, and after life-changing experiences at the World Cup and in Manchester, the founders decided to come up with a new concept.
In a market worth £1.3 billion for the top 5 European Leagues alone (Go Euro, 2016), there is surprisingly little for those fans wanting to truly immerse themselves in authentic match day experiences. And that’s where Homefans steps in.
Homefans is a travel startup providing unique football experiences beyond the 90 minutes. We design authentic and accessible experiences to help millennials tick off their football bucket list.
We’ve spent the last 8 months proving the concept which has led to over 250 travelers, £43k in revenue and an exclusive network of clubs, distributors & local ambassadors.
We want to raise investment to bring the new range of trips to market and establish the community behind Homefans.
We’re an international, highly motivated, energetic and effective team. We’re planning to expand and develop our team post investment to grow Homefans much further.
LUKE VERBEEK – FOUNDER/HEAD OF MARKETING
Originally visiting his beloved club, Manchester United, since 2004, Luke noticed his way of experiencing football changed in 2015, and has since come up with a new way of football trips, by meeting like-minded fans and improving the match day experience. Tested the market with early products and grew Homefans’ travelers to a total of 220 to date.
DANIEL VELASQUEZ – CO-FOUNDER/HEAD OF COMMERCIAL
With a track record of 10 years in Management Consulting and active involvement in the football industry, Daniel left Colombia to pursue his passion for football in the UK. At Homefans, he has managed to build a network of partners, clubs and organisations for the running of the business. He has worked side by side with Luke on developing the new brand and the structure behind Homefans.
Homefans is supported by a team of advisors and a group of dedicated team members like Thom Veldman and Pedro Godoy.
For us it’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride a club. It’s chatting with fellow fans, meeting like-minded people and creating lasting memories on every trip. That’s football.
Crowdfunding makes it possible for almost anyone to become an investor and allows brands to access the capital they require to grow.
Investors (-YOU-) can own part of our company from just £10 and share in our growth and success. You will also receive great rewards such as discounts, once in a lifetime experiences and could receive 50% tax relief on your investment.
We’ve partnered with Crowdcube who are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. You can join in under two minutes and it’s completely free.
We’re launching our campaign on Friday 15th September 2017 to raise £100,000 in exchange for 17% of our business.
– 5000 travelers by 2020
– £2’M Revenue
Homefans is a bootstrapped business and is now at a stage we can be proud of. We aim to get 5000 travelers by 2020 with £2’M revenue.
With investment, we aim at deploying a thorough marketing strategy and brand ambassador scheme, assemble the team on a full time basis, recruit brand influencers and for legal and product improvements.
Future plans include incorporating other sports and music festivals to expand the unique experience offering. We are looking at an exit in 4-5 years with an acquisition by a travel/experience group, which would derive in an attractive return for investors.
As we value our community, we’d like to pamper our investors with amazing rewards that range from discounts on trips to unique experiences like the Yellow Wall at Borussia Dortmund, the Manchester Derby or the Champions League Final!
We want you to be part of our journey. Invest in Homefans.
