London Falcons FC is a competitive and inclusive football team aimed at – but not exclusively limited to – gay and bisexual men in London. Based in South West London, the club has been running for over fourteen years and in that time we have had over 400 different LGBT men come along to our training sessions or play for one of our league teams. We’re very proud that today we have a very healthy mix of gay, bisexual and heterosexual players who come together to deliver our message of football being inclusive for everyone.
We are extremely proud of our achievements and the hard work of a lot of people connected with the club has led to considerable on-field success. In 2019, we claimed our first international medal with our 2nd place finish at the Eurogames, where inclusive football teams from across the continent met in Rome, helping to raise the profile and stature of the club within the LGBT sports community. Sadly, COVID-19 stopped us going for gold in Düsseldorf or Copenhagen in 2020 and 2021, so we look forward to rising to the challenge at Nijmegen 2022.
Domestically, having won the London Unity League, aimed solely at inclusive football teams, on four occasions, in the 2018/19 season we moved into the 120-year-old Wimbledon and District Football League to compete in a mainstream footballing league for the first time. Our first season was a hugely successful one, where we took our message of diversity and inclusion across South West London, securing a fourth-place finish without any instances of homophobia from our opposition teams. In just our second season at this level, we achieved promotion into the third division of the league structure. We continue to play within the Wimbledon and District League pyramid and look to make progress through the leagues whilst remaining guided by our core values as a club.
