Welcome to Sheffield FC – the World’s First Football Club


In the year of 1857 William Prest and Nathaniel Creswick founded the first football club in the world.
Two pioneers, that developed new rules and laws for a game to play with friends of all ages in the community. Early both gentlemen saw the power of football to connect people with grace, happiness
and respect for one another. Starting with the inventions of 1857, football became a strong social
and emotional basement for the citizens of Sheffield - and is today the world's greatest game.

Throughout history, our club Sheffield FC has always played football at amateur level. When the first
professional league was founded in 1885, the club wasn’t strong enough to compete with the newly formed and paid pro-teams and so decided to set up the first official amateur competition in football.

Being proud of our status as true amateur club, we have developed a grass roots environment with
more than 12 teams – from an under 14 girls’ team to over 35 and Ex Sheffield Players – a place for
every football enthusiast, living within the region of Sheffield.

To preserve our heritage and the nature of football, our club has founded its own foundation in 2010. Therewith the club will never invest in future players, but in different local and global projects to
spread the true values of the game: Integrity, Respect and Community.

On the following pages you will find more information to the topics mentioned above as well as to
further interesting content about the Club. And in case you want to get closer to football’s first club,
contact our chairman and come on over to visit us at the Home of Football, back in little Sheffield.

Yours in Football,
Sheffield FC
