The Club

The University of St Andrews football programme fosters a healthy relationship between athlete and student. Our players graduate with a world-class education, an exceptional sporting experience and teammates for life.

Founded in 1887, the Football Club is long established as one of the biggest and most successful clubs at the University. 

Our vision is to develop one of the best performance football programmes in the UK to ensure our players compete at the highest level year in, year out.

In 2017, the players and coaches from Saints Football established a club philosophy which encompasses our motto ‘Our Legacy. Be Remembered.’ and three core values:

Respect | Passion | Excellence

Our philosophy defines what we stand for, is a promise we make to our teammates, and will help us continue to develop everyone involved in our programme, both on and off the pitch.
