In 1999 London Marathon Playing Field Greenwich was the first ground to be saved with the help of the London Marathon Charitable Trust. Already established as the country’s first dedicated mini-soccer centre, additional funding from LMCT and the Football Foundation enabled us to build a new pavilion in 2003.

The ground hosts the Selkent Youth League and the highly regarded South London Special League. It is also regularly used for London FA coach education courses.
