OUR
MISSION

 
A

fter more than 150 years without a permanent home in the city of Sheffield, we want to locate the World’s First Football Club back to its roots and the game’s original birthplace. We want to bring the English amateur team of Sheffield FC back to the roots and build a new home for football! A home for football fans all over the globe, a home for all of us to celebrate the true values and original spirit of the beautiful game.

A home for the games’ heritage and history, for grass roots and football’s next generation. A home for us to remember, what real football is all about.

WHERE FOOTBALL
KICKED OFF

 

Every football club needs a home, and from the first day of the club’s foundation until about 1862, Sheffield FC’s home ground was a field in Olive Grove, in the heart of modern Sheffield.

 
O

live Grove is located within a traditional working-class district of the city and is today used as a ground for local cricketers. In June 2015 Sheffield FC was granted a free land lease by Sheffield City Council with a view to relocating to Olive Grove. Unfortunately the site at present does not contain the facilities to host senior non-league football matches.

And this we aim to change.
For the love of the game!

to make Olive Grove become
the Home of Football again!
