We have asked a few people in this unprecedented time for their opinion upon how Football clubs of any size are being affected by the current COVID 19 pandemic. Here is what Chris Dolby from the oldest Football Club in the wold has to discuss…

As the world struggles to contain the Covid19 pandemic the economy has left everyone uncertain of what the future holds.

Football is a global sport and the world’s First Football Club, Sheffield FC played an instrumental part in creating the beautiful game. Football has certainly changed both on and off the field from when we started playing football in 1857.Football was played for the love of the game, jumpers for goalpost! but eventually professional football was born. Governing bodies started to lead the game and over time the World was united through the power of football.
