New to the Fish?
Fisher FC – Cool name but how did it come about?
The club was originally named after the Catholic martyr Saint John Fisher. This makes Fisher one of the few sports clubs in the world to take their name from a person rather than place. The club are the continuation of ‘Fisher Athletic’ who were wound up by the high court over non-payment of debts on 13 May 2009.
Following a meeting on Druid Street in Bermondsey on the evening of 28 May, a supporters trust was formed to take control of all forthcoming club matters, with 37 founding members. This meeting announced ‘AFC Fisher’ as a working title, before a subsequent members meeting decided the new club name as ‘Fisher FC’.
We were lucky enough to have the great team from Copa90 visit us to learn more about the club, you can see their film Finding the Heart of Football: Fisher FC – An Underdog Story below:
When are the games?
Our season runs from mid-August to early May, with our usual matchdays being on Saturdays and Tuesday nights, starting at 3:00pm and 7:45pm respectively. We keep our website’s Fixtures and Results up to date with our latest fixtures, so you can check there to see when we are next at home.
Sometimes fixtures may be moved due to cup commitments or postponed due to the weather, so please do double check before travelling and always check this website and our Twitter feed for the latest information.
How do I get a ticket and how much does it cost?
The club are committed to providing an affordable alternative to the often expensive Premier League and Championship ticket prices found elsewhere in London. With this in mind we try to keep ticket prices as low as possible whilst balancing the club’s needs to ensure we remain sustainable, profitable and can continue to progess. Adult entry is £8, Concessions are £5 and Under 16s are free to attend if accompanied by a paying adult – £1 otherwise.
We do not usually sell tickets in advance, so you can turn up and pay on the day. The turnstiles for all fans are clear to see on the Salter Road side of the stadium and usually open around an hour before kick-off.
If you fall in love with the club then you can join as a Member and part-owner for only £20, more details on our Membership pages.
At the game
Where do I sit?
As usually found at non-league football we do not segregate our games and so you are free to sit or stand wherever you like. The Barry Albin-Dyer stand is our main all seated stand on the Clubhouse side of the pitch (as you enter via the turnstiles), and there is covered terracing behind the goals at the Dockers End which, like the main stand, offers shelter in wet weather.
For a first time visitor, the best overall view and most comfortable position is found in the Barry Albin-Dyer Stand.
Where can I get something to eat or drink?
The Clubhouse serves a range of hot drinks and snacks as well as beer from the Anspach and Hobday brewery. See out Matchday menu here.
What else happens at the game?
We also have the Fisher Super Draw with a chance to win £50 and the excellent match day programme to read. Our pop up club shop sells a range of merchandise and a large selection of old league and non-league programmes. From time to time we hold theme days such as Community Day or our popular Non League Dogs day.
