Tantallon Victoria were formed on the 31t of January 2009 in The Sports Cafe on Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow and joined the Strathclyde Saturday Morning Amateur Football league in August the same year. The club takes it’s name from two streets in Shawlands – Tantallon Road and Victoria Road – which are in the area round Queen’s Park where we did our first pre-season.

The club plays it’s home games at The PSL Teamsports Arena on the southside of Glasgow and tries to play good football in the right spirit. We are proud of having had players from France, Denmark, Ireland, Romania and Zimbabwe as well as players of Italian, Polish and Irish heritage over the years, and promote grassroots football as a way to bring people together.

Since 2011 we have built up a passionate following and made many friends in the game through our Twitter. It has grown into one of the most popular non-professional football feeds in the country. In particular we have gained huge support and some dear friendships in The West Midlands of England with one of our oldest followers there dubbing us “The Biggest Black Country Team in Glasgow”.

The feed is there not just to promote us but to promote the playing of the game for it’s own sake – by Amateur and Juniors. We want to try and contribute to bringing more people back into the game. For this is what we are most passionate about – getting people involved and making friends in grassroots football.

We never take ourselves too seriously, we like a drink and a party, and we will always remain what we always have been – 20 pals kicking a ball about cos we love the game.

Thanks for visiting our site. Check out our sponsor pages, visit the club shop which helps support the club, and join us in season 2013-2014 as we go on another rollercoaster journey through grassroots football. Hopefully there will be a little glory on the way.


Davie Brown.

Chairman – Tantallon Victoria AFC
