Sandown FC Club History
A little more about Sandown FC
Sandown Football Club was established in 1880 and is one of the oldest clubs on the Island.
For the first 18 years of its existence, SFC only played friendly matches as the Isle of Wight Football League was not started until 1898.
Over the years, we have had various successes, however in the 70’s & 80s SFC we played Hampshire League Football at the Fairway Park, Sandown.
Regularly playing to crowds of 400+ Fairway park was a real old fashioned ground with a large wooden stand which was regularly packed with local supporters.
Today, SFC plays its home games not far from Fairway Park at Sandown Bay Academy. We have two adult teams and still continue to provide football to the Sandown community 140 years after our predecessors started this great club.
