The world’s oldest club have never had a permanent ground in Sheffield
25 July ~ Sheffield FC, the world’s oldest football club, have launched a crowd funding campaign to help them move back home. Formed in 1857, the club have never had a proper home in the city of Sheffield and have been playing in the nearby Dronfield since 2001. However, in the coming years they aim to return to Olive Grove, in the heart of the city, and the first step will be to raise £150,000 via crowd funding platform Indiegogo to build a proper playing pitch on the site. Future plans will include a stands, floodlights, dressing rooms and eventually classrooms and a museum. You can find out more information about the campaign and donate here.
