Temple Fortune Football Club (www.tffc.co.uk) were formed in December 1968 at Princes Park in Temple Fortune NW11 by a group of local youngsters who originally held kick-abouts and small-sided games in the park since the mid-1960s. After a few years of playing friendlies, the club ventured into Sunday league football in 1976 by joining the Maccabi (Southern) Football League and were founder members of the Maccabi Masters Football League (veterans) in 1999. Over the course of its history, the club has run a First team, Second team and an Old Boys team, three teams being its maximum in any single season.
TFFC has played home matches at various locations in the London Borough of Barnet, namely Bethune Park, Childs Hill Park, Hampstead Heath and West Hendon Playing Fields. In more recent times, the club has had home venues at Hatch End and Whitchurch Playing Fields under the London Borough of Harrow. The Club has now moved its MSFL teams to The Hive for the 2011/12 season after 5 seasons at Hatch End Playing Fields.
The traditional colours of Temple Fortune FC since 1985 have been yellow shirts and red shorts, although in 2006 the club reverted to its original league colours of green and white to mark 30 years of league participation. In 2008 TFFC celebrated its 40th anniversary by holding a commemorative tournament back at its birthplace, namely Princes Park.
For season 2011/12, TFFC will be running three teams, two in the MSFL and one in the Masters League. The First Team are competing in MSFL Division One, having won the Division Two championship in 2010/11, whilst the Second Team will be playing in Division Four. The Old Boys Team are in the Masters Division Two.
