AFC Croydon Athletic – a volunteer-run semi-professional football club based in Thornton Heath. It’s the most senior non-league football team in the London Borough of Croydon, one that is making meaningful inroads into the local community. With 15 teams across the Under 8 to Under 18 age group, it’s a club that sees over 200 young people play football at The Mayfield Stadium. The diversity that exists within its teams directly reflects the makeup of the Croydon Community. COVID has hit non-league football hard – first team football has been suspended since last October.
AFC Croydon Athletic is fully committed to hosting football in a safe environment when circumstances allow – for the next generation of young people, their families and spectators. With no revenue coming in, they have turned to fundraising events to achieve that aspiration – the first of which being a virtual comedy night with the finest *South London comedians on the bill.
