The title of the oldest club in London has recently been contested between Fulham and Crystal Palace after a historian discovered that a football team was established at the Crystal Palace Exhibition building in 1861. But photo evidence of the almost 2000-year-old Londinium FC has thrown the debate wide open.
Founded in AD 47 by Publius Ostorius Scapula, the club competed in the Roman SVPQR League until 410 AD. Despite a rocky spell under the reign of trigger-happy club chairman, Nero, they enjoyed a period of dominance between 190 AD and 225 AD due to their watertight back four, affectionally known to fans as the London Wall.
Their original long-sleeve jersey from AD 47 is available now.
Sublimation printing on 100% polyester
Micro-ribbing material used on the collar and cuff
Rubber heat pressed crest applied via heat press
Number 10 on the back
