In March 1991 a gay amateur footballer living in London put an advert in a gay publication asking for like-minded people to contact him. He wanted to encourage gay men to play competitive football and was amazed by the number of replies he received.

Stonewall Football Club was born and was the first gay mens football club in the UK.

The club joined the Sportsmans Senior Sunday Football League that same year and have grown to the extent that we have run up to four teams in a season.

Stonewall currently play against straight opposition in the Middlesex County Football League, Premier Division (step 7 of the non league pyramid table), the AFA West End Sunday League and the friendly London Unity League with extra fixtures in the GSFN Cup rounds. Stonewall have regular training nights, 5-a-side nights, football tours and social evenings.

Stonewall have a full dedicated committee.

Stonewall are the current British, European, World and Gay Olympic Champions.
