The American Football Club is one of the fastest growing clubs at the University with some of the most enthusiastic and passionate club members around. The club’s rapid development in the past three seasons has seen it go from flag football to full contact action with the club now competing in the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) competition, progressing into the play offs in the 2017-18 season.
    The club caters to players of all abilities and always welcomes new members throughout the whole academic year. Whether you are a complete beginner or an American Football enthusiast, there has never been a better time to join.
    There are weekly training sessions to attend where you will not only learn the game but also meet new people and become a part of the American Football family at the University of East London. Off the field, the club enjoys a number of social nights each year which is a perfect opportunity to relax and enjoy the social element of being part of a sports club.

    PLEASE NOTE: Training has adapted according to the sport governing body. Please contact the club for more information. 

    Training takes place every Thursday from 7.30-9.30pm at Royal Docks Academy

    With the club growing in strength, there are a number of benefits you can enjoy by becoming a member today such as:

    • Weekly, full contact training sessions
