A Sheffield cassette label has becomes official sponsor of Yorkshire’s international football team. Tye Die Tapes celebrates entering its 8th year by achieving its single goal as a record label, to sponsor a non-league football team. They never thought that “non-league” would mean “international” and that the team would be Yorkshire. Their teenage fantasies of a team to represent the county of Yorkshire are coming true and it’s happening on the non-league football grounds we frequent.
YIFA, the Yorkshire Independent Football Association, is a non-affiliated group formed with the purpose of establishing a Yorkshire football team to enter into international competition. It’s first friendly will be against Ellan Vannin, the international team representing the Isle of Man. YIFA has been featured on BBC Sport, Yorkshire Post and many others but needs people’s assistance to maintain momentum.
