CCFC members to choose new logo and home kit

Recently, Clapton Community Football Club and Clapton Football Club settled an intellectual property dispute.

As part of this settlement, CCFC have agreed to make some changes to make even more explicitly clear that we are not, and have never been, connected to Clapton Football Club.

Specifically, we will update our club badge and home kit, so neither incorporates red and white vertical stripes. We will also no longer be using ‘the Tons’ as our nickname.

Members will soon get the chance to choose our new logo and home kit. Keep an eye on the members’ newsletter.

Existing club merch featuring the current badge will not be on sale from June 11 2022 though we’ll have new merch on sale in due course.

Members of CCFC last week also voted 98% in favour of changing two club rules as a result of the settlement.

Clapton Community Football Club was formed in 2018 and has grown massively since, with over 1700 members owning and running the club.

Hundreds of children and adults train with our club each week. We also have eight competitive teams competing in women’s, men’s and junior football.

We look forward to playing competitive football at London’s oldest senior football ground, the Old Spotted Dog in Forest Gate, as soon as we can.

We ask all members, supporters and football fans to respect the differences between the two clubs.

  1. Dear Clapton Friends

    It’s been such a difficult time. I recognise changes must be made. It’s a little sad, as the Spanish Civil War commemoration was my introduction to this fantastic football club.

    The past will not be forgotten as Clapton CFC moves forward. Such a history eg Walter Tull and Ben Odeje. So much achieved since 2018 also. I’ve only managed one match at the Stray Dog where I was treated with overwhelming kindness by literally everyone I met in such a safe and caring atmosphere. I still tell friends about that visit to the last match of the season when we were promoted!

    I will be coming up in the new season to the Old Spotted Dog. I’d also like to think the club emblem on the newsletter will be on our new shirts.

    Looking forward to renewing my membership and to new beginnings.

    With love and solidarity

    Dave Clinch 💚✊🏽
