Caledonian Braves, the football club run by fans through an app

Caledonian Braves, the Scottish Lowland Football League club with big ambitions, has launched the eagerly awaited Braves App as part of a ground-breaking series of initiatives that will put the club at the forefront of equality, inclusion and innovation in Scottish football.

The Braves App has been created to put the club’s future direction in the palm of fans’ hands.

Fans who download the app will be able to vote on decisions ranging from deciding the captain’s toss of heads or tails, issuing monthly How Brave Are You? challenges to the squad, and providing scouting reports from across Europe.

It will include nominating official charities, setting board agenda items and taking a virtual seat at the boardroom table to shape the club’s strategy.

The launch coincides with the premiere of Brave Calling, a new documentary that chronicles the journey from the club’s inception in the South of Scotland League as Edusport Academy to its place in the Lowland League and rebrand last year as Caledonian Braves.

Braves have reiterated their mission to join the ranks of the Scottish Professional Football League by 2025 and take their fans on a journey to the ultimate destination of the Scottish Premiership.

To help that objective, owner Chris Ewing is also recruiting a board of independent non-executive directors to help steer the strategy and also to reflect the modern and inclusive club he envisions.
