Club Tropicana FC, the team formerly known as Initiative, has had more name changes than Prince (and won just as many awards). Founded as Monopoly FC in 2003 by Legal League legends Andy Blank and Richard Broadhurst, we began life in the Corporate League, winning the League in our first season and the Cup in 2005. We joined the Legal League in 2006 and gradually established ourselves as a competitive force. Following a narrow loss to Spartans in our first Champions League Cup final outing in 2009/10 we have become regular winners of silverware. In 2010/11 and 2011/12, we won back to back Champions League Cups against Spartans and Hamsap respectively and picked up the Legal League Sevens in 2011. Manager Broadhurst then set his sights on the ultimate Legal League prize, with the Club’s name changing to reflect the name of our sponsor, Hong Kong recruitment specialists Initiative.
In 2013/14 Initiative FC won the League and an era looked like ending following the retirement of Broadhurst as Manager. However the Club has been re-invigorated by Chairman Stephen Wozencroft’s appointment of player management team Adam Bilbey and Kevin Reid and so the story continues. Club Tropicana FC will continue the traditions of the Club’s commitment to competitive, social football and, as the name would suggest, plenty of off-field camaraderie.
