Established in 2014, Motspur Park FC is the only FA Three Star Accredited Club in the London Borough of Merton having previously held the former prestigious FA Charter Standard Community Club Status kitemark. The club is entirely run by a team of dedicated volunteers and over 50 volunteer coaching staff that enable us to provide footballing opportunities for over 500 members between the ages of 5 and 65!
The general aims of the club are to increase the number of people actively participating in sport by constantly expanding the footballing opportunities on offer to the local community. The club operates on a fully inclusive basis ensuring that everyone, regardless of their characteristics, has the opportunity to partake in football within a safe environment.
The club also aims to promote football and sport as a means of enhancing health education, learning opportunities and local community involvement, with young people acquiring sporting and personal skills from which they will derive lifelong benefits, self-respect, self-esteem, self-confidence, integrity and respect for others.
The club’s ethos is set around striving to develop potential which is achieved by raising coaching and playing standards as the club evolves year on year.
Motspur Park Disability FC is part of the non-profit Motspur Park Football Group comprising of an Adult section, Youth & Girls section, and as of 2022-23 season a specialist section dedicated to providing footballing opportunities for players with sensory, learning, or physical disabilities.
Our aim is to expand the level of local community engagement in sport by providing opportunities for disabled people of all ages and abilities. We provide a football for all approach where anyone who wants to participate is welcome to.
Our disability section offers two types of memberships, training only or team membership. This allows players to participate as much or as little as they want within their comfort zones. Training only players receive a MPFC training top and jacket and can participate in as many or as few of the regular training sessions as they want. Team players receive in addition to this a full match kit and the option to play in as many of the monthly festival events as they want.
The disability section at Motspur Park FC has a key set of core values that distinguish us from the competitive nature of mainstream football.
