Manchester gay football club taking on new members

A training session pre-Covid

Village Manchester FC, Manchester's gay and inclusive football club, have returned to training and competitive fixtures in line with the government's roadmap of easing restrictions.

The club are celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2021 - they were formed to give gay and bi men a safe, welcoming place to play and support football.

They now welcome transgender players, and have attracted an increasing number of straight allies attracted by the club's inclusive ethos.

There are four teams covering the full range of abilities. The first and second teams compete in the Lancashire and Cheshire League on Saturday afternoons, whilst the third and fourth teams play in the Manchester Amateur Sunday Football League on Sunday mornings.

They also compete in the national Gay Football Supporters’ Network (GFSN) Cup, which is made up of LGBTQ+ teams from around the country.

The club made it to 2020's Cup final before the first lockdown, which will be played as soon as travel restrictions are lifted.

Training for new players is on Wednesdays at 7pm at Trinity Sports Centre, close to the University of Manchester and MMU.

New players are welcome and anyone interested should read the information and complete the short form here.
