Statement regarding Dulwich Hamlet Football Club’s move back to Champion Hill grounds

24 October 2018

Cllr Johnson Situ, Southwark’s Cabinet Member for Growth, Development and Planning , said: “I am pleased we have been able to reach an agreement that will allow DHFC to return to their rightful home at Champion Hill and provide them with some stability, as well as securing much needed investment in local sporting facilities.

“This has been a difficult decision for the council, balancing multiple interests, however our principal objective has always been to support the club and to ensure its long term future. This is hopefully the first step towards that goal.

“The overarching vision for Greendale remains the same, with significant green open space remaining under council control so that we can ensure it meets the needs of the local community. The difference now is that the astroturf area will be managed by DHFC, who will invest in it to bring it up to a decent standard for use by the community and club alike.''
