Tomorrow will see Chairman Richard Tims and Club Secretary Bill Towning from the Sheffield FC team visit Norway for a journey back to the roots of football. The trip will see the team welcoming Odds Ballklubb into the Club of Pioneers.
Founded in 1894, Odds Ballklubb or more commonly known as Odd are Norway's oldest football club, being the original innovators of the beautiful game in the country. Currently playing in the Eliteserien league, tomorrow will see Odd face Stromsgodset at home with #theworldsfirst watching.
The day is bound to be special, celebrating the heritage and history of football in Norway through acknowledging Odd’s part in our global game’s history. The day will also be used to educate Norwegian football fans on the history of Sheffield FC as The World’s First Football Club and the club’s future plans for football.
