Our vision for TM UNITED has been to enhance its status as a community based club and to create a facility around it that is second to none in non-league football.
The move to Imperial Fields gave us the opportunity to take this journey.
We have built a community football structure that creates a pathway from ‘The Kickers’ at the age of 7, through ‘TM United Youth FC' to our BTec academy and at the highest level to our first team. We also host the Unified League, a mixed league for both disabled and able bodied participants.
Tooting and Mitcham Community Sports Club was created as an independent operator offering strong third sector delivery with sport, health, education and enterprise opportunities for everyone in our local community and beyond.
Our facilities now boast a football stadium, 2 multi-sport All Weather Pitches of the highest standard, a fitness gym, a boxing gym and 1km trim trail. A sports bar and function room as well as smaller meeting/conference spaces. There is a tea bar and club shop for match days. We have a children’s soft play area ‘The Good Ship Lollipop’. We also have training ground and further multi-sport grass facilities at a location nearby.
We are home to many sports clubs including Tooting Bec FC, Smallholdings ABC and Hillcroft Lacrosse all of whom compete at local and national level.
Imperial Fields sits within the Wandle Valley and its newly created regional park. We have strong links with the trust running the park and are seeking to create opportunities for cycling along the Wandle Path with bike hire at our site.
Future plans include another stand for our stadium pitch which will house a sports injury/health centre, small pods under our minor stands creating opportunities for charity and market events as well as studios for young emerging artists, a new changing room block and educational suite for our rear AWP and a new entrance building which will house reception, changing rooms and a sports competition space.
Our journey has created many exciting working partnerships including those with Sport England, The Football Foundation, the three surrounding boroughs of Merton, Sutton and Wandsworth, Wandle Valley Regional Park Trust and many others.
All of the above has been made possible by huge support from countless people and organisations. With their on-going support plus that from anyone else that truly cares about provision of community facilities we will complete our vision.
