About Us


Formed in 1985, the East Kilbride Pirates are Scotland’s leading American Football club.

We aim to make our club a welcoming place where everyone can feel supported and able to be themselves.  We believe that everyone should be able to participate in and enjoy American football in a safe and positive environment – whoever they are and whatever their background.  We welcome players and volunteers of all genders, sexual orientations, religions, ethnicities and backgrounds regardless of experience.
