Welcome to Ballincollig AFC
We are a soccer club based in a suburb west of Cork City. The club was founded in 1974 and has grown from strength to strength since then this is reflected by the fact we currently field teams from Academy boy’s and girls all the way up to Senior + Junior Men’s in the Munster Senior League, AUL leagues & Senior Women’s to Over 35′s men, Schoolboy’s and everything in between.
Ballincollig Afc has a proud history and tradition that grows ever longer and more illustrious with each season and we have always been competitive, going back to winning our first league title, “The Division Three Title” in 1974/75 and first cup “The County Cup in 1975/76″. As it’s now approached our 40th Anniversary this year (2014) we had the huge honour of welcoming Cork City FC to the Landing Field for a Commemorative match after John Caulfields’s City team had just qualified for European football. Former Ballincollig players have represented their country at senior international level and at the highest levels of the professional game from the English Premier League to the Champions League. Current Ballincollig members represent their club with pride both on and off the pitch for Cork, Munster & Ireland in both the men and the women’s game.
We play our Home games in our new facilities in The Landing Field Sports Complex in the centre of Ballincollig town with 2 pitches, 4 dressing rooms with showers, kitchen, storage and meeting rooms, and parking, and we have on-going work on a new Training area to be completed in the next few weeks. We also Play our games in the Regional Park just west of Ballincollig town with 3 pitches at the famous location and 4 dressing rooms and training areas including outdoor gym equipment. Our Academy Section is booming and train on the Asto-Turf pitches just behind Supernova every Saturday morning at 10:30am, with 7 floodlight Astro-Turf pitches better than real grass and perfect in all weather conditions its the ideal place for youngsters to learn and grow as players and develop a love for the game plus Supernova is the safest place for the kids to play soccer thanks to the fully enclosed pitches.
For players and members it’s the pride of wearing the green and white of Ballincollig that matters the most. Whatever a player’s level or aspirations there is always a place for him or her with Ballincollig Afc.
