Economicals AFC

We focus on providing a good standard of amateur football for both LSE graduates and non-LSE alumni. Clad in the famous black and white stripes, we have a strong record of success with our 5 teams competing in the top 7 divisions of the AFC. Each side has a strong core of LSE graduates who represented LSE in BUCS from 2004 onwards.

Last season all five sides were promoted with the 4th team winning the London Old Boys Cup while recent seasons have also seen us win a number of league titles and an AFA cup. The club is currently chaired by James Katirai and if you would be interested in joining the club please contact him on 07715363460 or at jameskatirai@hotmail.co.uk. All players are asked to pay £5 match fees per game with an annual subscription required to cover the cost of kit and post-game food.

Economicals Rugby Club

Economicals Rugby Club

The Economicals Rugby Club was founded in 1983 by a number of graduating LSE students who wanted to continue to play together.  Unlike many university-founded rugby clubs, the club has thrived and now runs two XVs playing competitive rugby most weeks.  In 2008 they held a well-attended black tie gala dinner to celebrate the club's 25th anniversary.

1st XV plays in Surrey 2 and competes in the Surrey Shield and RFU Bowl, while the 2nd XV competes in the Surrey Reserve League Conference 4.

"We find the LSE sportsground to be a great standard of facilities when compared to the facilities at clubs that we visit - the pitches and interior areas are both maintained to a much higher standard and Berrylands is convenient for our members to travel to given the swift transport links."


Non alumni are also welcome.
