About The Poly

Polytechnic FC are a mens amateur football club, based in Chiswick, West London.

The club has been established since 1875 and is a full member of the Football Association, the Amateur Football Alliance and the Southern Amateur League.

The Polytechnic has a rich history incorporating the early years of the FA Cup, the origins of the London Marathon and many editions of the Olympic Games.


There are a total of 12 teams and so we can cater for adult players of all ages and playing standards.

Our nine league teams play on Saturday afternoons in the Southern Amateur League and various AFA cup competitions.

We have two veterans teams, one playing Saturdays, the other Sundays and a Strollers side.


We play our home matches at the Quintin Hogg Memorial Ground, which is owned by the University of Westminster.

Away matches can take place anywhere across the London area – you can see the composition of the leagues we play in on the fixtures or the tables page.

Both at home and away, there is a strong spirit of hospitality in our club and the competitions we play in, with refreshments being offered to visitors at all venues.
