If you love football, add this place to your bucket list. Everything that is wrong with Premier league is missing here, everyone and I mean everyone is welcome, it is basically a large garden party with footy going on in the background. People go to mix and socialise, decent food and happy hours on the ale and u will not find a friendlier place
First visit to Dulwich Hamlet Football Club and will definitely be back. Don’t Buy the Sun adverts, nice beer and pitta gyros and standing applause for the knee - what’s not to like! The quality of the action on the pitch was surprisingly good much better than expected. As a premiere league match regular I enjoyed the more relaxed match day experience, friendly and fun.
Dulwich Hamlet began playing at the ground in 1912. 'The Hill' was formerly one of the largest amateur grounds in England, with attendances often reaching 20,000 and beyond. The ground was used for football at the 1948 Summer Olympics, staging a game between Mexico and South Korea. When Dulwich Hamlet suffered financial problems, much of the land they owned was sold for development of a Sainsbury's supermarket. As a result, a new stadium was built on the site of the old Champion Hill stadium, and the Sainsburys supermarket was built on what had been the training pitch before the 1980s. The 'new' stadium was opened in 1992.
The ground was also used by Corinthian-Casuals from 1963 until 1968,Fisher Athletic from 2004 until they folded in 2009, and then by the new Fisher club between their formation in 2009 and 2016 when they moved to their own ground on Salter Road.
The stadium has the covered Tommy Jover main stand along the north side of the pitch, a smaller covered terrace on the opposite side (known as the "Toilets Opposite" stand), and uncovered terraces behind both goals.
The main stand incorporates the changing rooms, clubhouse and other ancillary facilities.
