Mersey Marauders Football Club

Mersey Marauders FC is Liverpool’s LGBT football team formed in January 2005. The primary aim of the club is to offer gay men within Liverpool and surrounding areas the opportunity to play football in a supportive and inclusive environment.

We're a friendly and growing bunch of people, always welcoming new enthusiastic players. Most of our members are from the Merseyside area but we also have players from further afield including Chester & Wigan.

Winning the GFSN Cup 2013

After reaching the final in all four national tournaments in 2011 and winning two, the Marauders’ application to join the GFSN National League was approved in March 2012 and they stormed to a League and Cup double in 2012/13. 2013/14 saw them winning the GFSN summer tournament and the 2nd division, and being promoted to the top division for the 2014/15 season.

The Mersey Marauders 2nd team play weekly in a local 5 a side league. We also enter teams in other 5 a-side tournaments, whilst also providing opportunities to play football in a more informal atmosphere, regardless of level of ability.

The club is also involved with wider issues pertinent to the gay, lesbian and transgender community such as campaigns to tackle homophobia in football.
