Football has a long and illustrious history in Liverpool, not just with it's two major professional
clubs but also with early pioneers, players, schools football and amateur leagues played on both Saturday and Sunday.
League Championships, Cup wins, European trophies, ESFA Wins, National Sunday cups; the list is endless. The Liverpool city region produces more professional footballers per head than any other British city, more child and youth soccer players, more amateur footballers and that is without mentioning the veritable army of volunteers who ensure that football is available and played in the city every day of the week.
It is entirely accurate to say that Liverpool is a hot bed of football.
It is equally as accurate to say that football in Liverpool does not just exist once a week at Goodison Park or Anfield. Nor is it just a televisual sports entertainment pursuit. Football in Liverpool exists on a daily basis in school playgrounds, in parks, in 5 a side centres, sports centres, on the streets, in futsal leagues, in workplaces, in pubs and social clubs and in every neighbourhood across the city.
However, amid all of this footballing activity and enthusiasm a gap in the city's footballing infrastructure is all too apparant. There is no senior non-league team playing within or representing the city. All of the outer boroughs are well represented; Knowsley, Sefton, Wirral, St Helens and Halton all have non-league clubs, but not Liverpool.
City of Liverpool Football Club will change that.
We seek to be an inclusive footballing expression of our city region identity, community owned and operated and providing a foundation for grassroots football to thrive and grow.
