PIN Dulwich Hamlet Football Club

Ordinary morality is for ordinary football clubs

Dulwich Hamlet are a semi-professional football club currently playing in the Isthmian League and is supported by the local community providing a perfect antidote to the excesses of the English Premiership. ‘The Hamlet’ as they are known have a 3,000 capacity ground at Champion Hill, East Dulwich in the borough of Southwark and have experienced growing support with the resultant growth in crowds over the past few years.

The club supports local and social initiatives such as when the team played a ground-breaking friendly against Stonewall FC, an LGBT rights charity, and regularly organise community activism such as supporting a food bank and a campaign to pay cinema workers the living wage. It is about as far removed from fellow London clubs Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal as a first time visitor could imagine and at £10 per ticket represents good value for attendance.

What to expect

For Dulwich Hamlet fans, supporting their team is a philosophical pursuit. It is all about fighting fascism and homophobia while eating bratwurst and knocking back the craft beer. Visitors can be assured of a friendly and welcoming atmosphere no matter which team you are following. Supporters can crack open cans of beer beside the pitch or buy pints of craft beer brewed in Peckham and eat bratwurst topped with sauerkraut from a pop-up stand. It is a very gentrified version of the London soccer scene and reveals East Dulwich in a quite different light to what might be envisaged.

The new Dulwich Hamlet superfans, the self styled “The Rabble”, are aware of their alternative appeal – one of their slogans is: “Ordinary morality is for ordinary football clubs.”
