Established 1994


The British Embassy Football Club enjoys football in many forms and at different levels. Dating back to 70s Japan, BEFC was re-established in its current form in 1994 joining the Tokyo Metropolitan League on it's formation in 2002 where it continues to play today. While the club's history is based around the British Embassy it is not exclusively for Embassy staff and certainly not limited to Brits. Indeed we currently have a membership including more than 25+ nationalities.

BEFC is a football club and our Division 1 team is also joined by our Ladies team, Division 3 team and Futsal team who also play together in 7s, futsal competitions and friendlies. At BEFC is an opportunity to compete at whatever levels suits your inclination or ability. The Division 1 team for those who want to play in a serious and competitive manner and enjoy the challenge of trying to win as a team.

As well as regular 11s, BEFC has one thing other clubs in the TML do not have, an all-weather 5-a-side (futsal) court in the Embassy grounds in central Tokyo with practice sessions there every Wednesday. We also practice park style football with two official 9-aside sized goals on Sunday afternoons by Futako Tamagawa.

BEFC is about good relationships through sports and being the best you can be - as a person or a player.
Feel free to contact us if you're looking to become part of an active club and not just a team.
