Organisation

The British Embassy Football club is recognised as an embassy team by its original founding and continued participation by embassy members. However it is not officially endorsed or recognised by the British Embassy itself, and is predominantly run by the non-embassy membership. This flexible organisation encourages all members to help assist in the running of the club where various tasks are handled by why who is willing and able at the time.
