Ballyclare Comrades Football Club, Ballyclare description

Sports Pitch/Hall (Football pitch etc)

Medium (1-150)

Ballyclare Comrades is a club in the NIFL Championship 1. This is the second level of Northern Ireland club football, one rung below the NIFL Premiership.

The club is based in Ballyclare, a small but growing market town in the south-east of County Antrim, about 15 miles from Belfast.

The team plays in a kit of red shirts with white trim, red shorts and red socks. The kit is manufactured by Umbro. Our shirt sponsor is Reid Black & Co. Solicitors. Ballyclare Comrades play at Dixon Park, in the centre of the town, beside the Comrades Social Club. Dixon Park has a capacity of 3,000, with the main seated stand at one side adjacent to a smaller seated stand where the changing rooms and club offices are sited. There are covered standing areas behind each goal, as well as seating behind one goal. There is a further standing area opposite the main stand.

The club is run by a committee, which is elected on a yearly basis by the season ticket holders. Therefore, it is one of the few truly democratic football clubs in existence today. There has recently been formed a Supporters Club, which has a growing enthusiastic membership who are passionate about the Comrades, and who are setting about fund raising activities to help the club financially.
