Welcome to the home of The Rams Army, the supporter’s club of AFC Croydon Athletic which is a member of the Southern Counties East Football League.  The club is owned by the supporters and was formed in 2012 following the demise of Croydon Athletic FC.

Our aim is to support the club in any way we can.  This generally takes the form of financial support, but we also aim to assist with ground improvements, repairs and development as well providing vocal support for the team.

Thank you to everyone who attended our last Quiz Night in early February.  This was a well attended event and raised a very useful amount.  More importantly, we hope that everyone who attended the evening had a very enjoyable time.  Our next fundraising event will be a Race Night which will be held in The Clubhouse on Friday 27th March from 7pm.  If you have not attended a Race Night before, there are 8 video races which are chosen at random.  each race has 8 horses and you bet on the horse you think will run – basically blind.  bets are from just £1.00 per horse per race.  The tote calculates the payout for the winning horse and everyone who has bet on that horse wins.  There are opportunities to sponsor races (great for companies) and to buy a horse.  The owner of the winning horse in each race wins a prize.  This is a very enjoyable evening.  There is no entry charge for the evening.    You can register your interest by emailing Paul at enquiries@ramsarmy.co.uk.
