The Edinburgh Academical Football Club (or Edinburgh Accies) are a club steeped in history and renowned for their welcoming and social culture. Founded in 1857, we are the oldest club in Scotland and second oldest in the World. More Scottish international rugby players have come from Accies than any other Scottish club and we count current internationals Hamish Watson and Blair Kinghorn among our numbers.

Our home at Raeburn Place hosted the first ever international rugby match, a fixture between Scotland and England that celebrates its 150th Anniversary in 2021, and is ideally situated in the beautiful Stockbridge and is also being developed by the Raeburn Place Foundation to deliver enhanced and sustainable sporting facilities, which will include a new clubhouse for EAFC.

We pride ourselves as a social and family friendly club with regular events, competitive membership options and very strong links to youth rugby through our Mini section and our partner club BATs.

We have 3 senior teams including an ambitious 1st XV, a competitive 2nd XV and the more social 3rd XV (or Mighty Casuals). Our rugby group nurture an environment where all players can be the best they want to be and everyone is welcome into the Accies family - we believe there is a place for everyone at Accies and we need the support of a strong social membership to achieve this.

We hope you will consider becoming a member this season. Whether you are renewing your membership, returning to the Club after a period of absence, or joining for the first time, we would like to thank you for your support.
