Club History

Hello, and welcome to Bloomfield Football Club’s Website, Bloomfield Football Club are a cross community club based in East Belfast, Northern Ireland. The club was formed from members of Bloomfield Presbyterian church on the Beersbridge Road out of the 24th Boys Brigade during the 1950's. The team was formerly known as the 24th Old Boys until the mid 1990’s when they changed their name to Bloomfield Football Club.

Currently, we have approximately 165 playing and 35 non playing members within our club. We have 3 senior teams competing in 2 different leagues. Both 1st & 2nd teams compete in "The Northern Amateur Football League" divisions 1B & 3B respectively, while the 3rd team compete in the Premier league of the South Antrim Football League.

We also have 7 Junior teams with age's ranging from under 9 to under 16; our 2 youngest groups play in the IFA Development Leagues each Saturday morning in small sided & reduced sized pitch's & balls to aid good progress at these age's. 3 of our other teams compete in the South Belfast Youth League, and our u16's in the Lisburn Invitational Junior Youth League. We also look each year to run a Munchkin group after Christmas each year for 6-8 year olds preparing them for team football when they reach the required age. 

The success of the Club over the past 10 years has been directly linked to a Management Agreement Facility in place with Belfast City Council (BCC) for the Orangefield Playing fields Complex. Bloomfield have been managing this site for BCC for 10 years now and ensure that the facility is used by a wide variety of teams across the city and province from a number of football associations, as well as local schools and community groups.

Bloomfield FC continue to promote cross community initiatives with teams from across the country and in Ireland. We look to stage a Junior Invitational Football Tournament during the close season (June) and a number of teams from across Northern Ireland, Ireland & England invited to take part.
