About Forest Green Rovers

We’re at the forefront of something new at Forest Green Rovers.

FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.

No other football club in the world has put the environment at the heart of what it does, embedded it into its DNA. We’re the only club in the world to have EMAS accreditation – the gold standard of environmental management – and we’re the first and only vegan football club in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience.

We’re an extremely ambitious club. Our aim is to be in the Championship within the next five years – and we’re planning to build a stadium to match those ambitions, too. Designed by world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid, ‘Eco Park’ would be the only stadium in the world made entirely of wood.

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

You can read about our incredible journey from the Mid Gloucestershire League (MGL) in 1894 all the way to The English Football League in 2017.
