Football is for everyone. It is a simple mantra, but one that needs actions to back it up. Clapham Common represents one of the most iconic patches of footballing turf in the United Kingdom’s capital, as home to more than 30 London FA clubs and hundreds of football players. But it has not been ‘for everyone’ of late.
The Greater London Women’s Football League (GLWFL) has stopped their clubs from booking Clapham Common as their home ground, due to the lack of female changing facilities. A campaign by a local team, and funds from FIFA, now aims to change that.
