MEMBERSHIP

Join the Bohemian Football Club!

You can become a member for the equivalent of €1 euro a day – or less than 58 cent a day if you’re a student!

WHY BECOME A MEMBER? 

Across Europe, clubs are turning their backs on private ownership and reforming into collective, membership-based bodies in order to enshrine the security and future prosperity of their club into the hands of those who care most — the fans.

The Bohemian Football Club has been a members-owned club since its foundation on 6th September 1890 in the gate lodge at the North Circular Road entrance to the Phoenix Park, where the Club played and trained for the first three years of its existence.

The democratic principle of ‘one man, one vote’ is at the heart of Ireland’s oldest football club which has truly pioneered the game, prime movers in founding the Leinster Football Association, the Football Association of Ireland, the League of Ireland, and the Amateur League.

By fashioning Dalymount Park (opened in September 1901) from what had been part vegetable patch, part vacant lot, Bohemians created what many still feel is the ‘home of Irish football’, a ground that has graced by a cast of thousands, including such as Stanley Matthews, Pele, Franz Beckenbauer, Bobby Charlton, Ruud Gullit, Marco Van Basten, and Zinedine Zidane, as well of course countless Irish stars past and present, Paddy Moore, Jackie Carey, Johnny Giles, Liam Brady et al.
