For the last few weeks I’ve been looking after the coaching of the Boiler Room football team. For those that don’t know the Boiler Room have teamed up with Umbro to create a football social club.
Expect lots of footballing events throughout the summer..

Boiler Room FC is a football social club, tailored by Umbro.
Born out of the success of our FIVES tournament in 2011, BRFC is a continued collaboration between Boiler Room and Umbro, celebrating our shared passion for the beautiful game from pitch level to post game pint. It’s a club for all who are passionate about football and music.
After months of heated football talk amongst our favourite people / labels / collectives, the FIVES tournament was a chance to watch them battle it out. Football, music, food, drink, sun and a lot of rain, all compacted into one afternoon. NTS won it and took home the 6ft tall solid gold plastic trophy, R&S, Hotflush and Numbers made it to the semi finals, it was a lot of fun.
We didn’t have our own team though, and so we started meeting up for weekly kickabouts after work. Since then it has become less about inter-label club rivalries and more a coming together of all us involved to play football, talk football and watch football. Simply put, a social club and team started emerging and now we’re making it legit. We’re setting up BRFC with Umbro because they’re the truest brand in football who continue to challenge how people connect with the game, they put a lot of faith in us very early on and they totally get what Boiler Room is all about.
