Graham AFC (Athletic Football club) is based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and currently plays in:

CAN-DU 5.Division, Group 6

The club's official nickname is 'The Clan' to honour the heritage of its foundation. Coming all the way from the shores of Aberdeen, Scotland the owner's family settled in Toronto and has been involved in the local soccer community ever since.

The club's home pitch is Fort York which is located in the downtown heart of the city. The facility lies adjacent to historic military grounds dating back to the War of 1812 - where Americans failed to invade their northern neighbour (then British North America).

The club was founded on October 22, 2010. But despite its relative infancy, has a strong infrastructure that is currently expanding where possible. The manager, Sir Haddy, has confirmed that the goals are to improve the squad, achieve promotion to the 4th division and expand the stadium to a capacity of approximately 20,000. The club's Gaelic motto is 'Ne Oublie' which means 'Never Forget'.


StadiumEdit

Fort York is currently experiencing a period of rapid expansion. The stadium originally opened as an all-seater with a capacity of 8,000. But current investments have brought local contractors on scene to immediately expand by filling in all the corners with 500 seats each, and doubling the Duke's Stand in the north (the supporter section) to 2,000. On November 1, 2010 construction was completed bringing capacity to 11,000.

The ultimate goal of the club is to expand capacity to 20,000 after promotion is achieved.
