Black Country Fusion were formed in 2016 by Skye Stewart as the first LGBT inclusive team in the West Midlands to enter a Sunday league and not a conventional gay league, which received interest from local and national media. What gave Fusion a bigger identity was that all players who are heterosexual believed in equality in football and have since worked very closely with Just A Ball Game, to promote the message of equality in football. Fusion played in the Beacon Afternoon League between 2016 to 2018 and finished 7th and 6th in the respective seasons. They have also played in the Staffordshire FA affiliated cups, getting to the semi-finals in the 2017-2018 season.
Following the conclusion of the 17/18 season, Fusion signed a deal with WMRL Premier League side, Black Country Rangers, to create the Black Country Football Club, this led to the development of a ladies, veterans and youth section of the club. Fusion will moving to play in the Wolverhampton Sunday morning league for 2018 -2019 season.
