Downing College Association Football Club

Men’s football is one of Downing’s most popular and successful sports. With three teams playing every weekend, players of all abilities are welcome, and everyone should regularly get a game.

The men’s 1st XI are currently the best college team in all of Cambridge, having won Division 1 this year, going unbeaten the whole season. The second and third teams have also seen success recently, including the 2nd team reaching the Plate final this year.

All of our teams are able to take advantage of our outstanding football ground, just a short cycle away on Granchester Road, which boasts beautiful pitches.

As well as success on the pitch the football club also prides itself on its strong social scene off it. Regular societal events are organised weekly over the course of the year culminating in the Annual Football Dinner to celebrate the successes of the respective teams over the course of the season, so there are plenty of opportunities to get involved.
