AboutForest Green Rovers

Forest Green Rovers FC are a professional football club based in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire. They are nicknamed “Rovers” or “The Green” and play their home matches at The New Lawn stadium.

Forest Green’s shirt is a striking lime green and black hooped kit and they currently play in the National League (formerly the Conference Premier), the 5th tier of the English football league system. The club was founded in 1889 as Forest Green by the local Nonconformist church minister. The club have won the FA Vase in 1981-82 and were champions of the Southern Premier League in 1997-98.

The club narrowly missed out on promotion to the Football League when defeated in a play-off final at Wembley versus Grimsby Town. This means Forest Green will compete once again in the National League and will be one of the favorites for promotion in 2016/17.
