What we do

We run a growing and successful community football club in Regent’s Park and we have Girls, Boys, Women and Men’s teams.

What we have learned since we started  in 2006.

If we can’t do the basics amazingly well, nothing else matters We are passionate about providing our kids with the best coaching environment possible. Our coaches are paid properly which means we can attract the best coaches.  We also provide a programme of continuing training and professional development for our coaches.

Funding Funding for grassroot clubs simply does not exist.  We are at the bottom of the football finance pyramid and London is not the cheapest place to live, work and bring up a family. Running a small football club is a challenge financially. Your subscriptions help us pay for the running of the club and to help financially challenged families participate in playing football.

Hire people with passion and who care.  We hire people who are passionate about teaching football. Our coaches are professionals and they believe in our Regent’s coaching system. We train our coaches with our very own Regent’s curriculum and give them the confidence to develop themselves as role models.

Be brave with your ideas. And be a wizard to make them happen Regent’s Park Football Club philosophy is not about doing slightly better, it is about taking our community on a magical massive success adventure. Where can we go!!! Gothia 2021, Dallas Cup. We have huge dreams and intentions to be the very best we can be
