MORE ABOUT US
East Cowes Victoria Athletic Football Club (The Vic’s) were formed in 1885. The name incidentally is the longest registered with the English F.A. The Victoria part derives from the fact that the ground in “Beatrice Avenue” is part of the crown estate and in the area owned by Osborne House, the home of Queen Victoria.

The Vics’s were founder members of the Isle of Wight F.A, and played only in the Island leagues for the first 30 years. In 1889 the Isle of Wight F.A introduced cup competitions including the Isle of Wight Senior Gold Cup, this trophy is reported to be the most valuable football trophy in the world being made of solid gold.

The only drawback is that if you win the Gold Cup you can’t keep it! Most clubs insure it for the annual presentation night and return it to the bank. In 1947 Vic’s joined Division 3 of the Hampshire League and spent 9 seasons in Division 3, 18 in Division 2, 12 in Division 1, Today the club provides football for both youth and senior sections of the game and is at the heart of the community.
