Stonewall Football Club
Stonewall Football Club was the brainchild of a gay amateur footballer who was living in London back in 1991. He came up with the idea of putting an advert in a gay publication to see if other like-minded people wanted to contact with him and share his passion to play competitive football. He was taken aback by the number of replies he’d received to the advert and thus Stonewall Football club was given life as the first gay men’s football club in the whole of the United Kingdom.
Currently, they’ve grown to such proportions they are able to run up to four teams in a season as the play in the Sportsmans Senior Sunday Football league and even claimed the European and Gay Games glory by winning the championship.
Regular practice nights, including five a-side sessions and various social gatherings to ensure they keep their competitive edge.
