Dulwich Hamlet FC – London’s hipster football club
Dulwich Hamlet are a small south London club playing in the Isthmian League Premier Division.
But in recent seasons, the Hamlet’s popularity has grown out of all proportion to their relatively lowly status in English football’s seventh tier.

In an Elephant Sport-Artefact collaboration, Mike Newell, Lucas Chomicki, Crystal Davis and Jeremie Crystal went to watch Dulwich Hamlet face Merstham to ask fans and find out for themselves what make Dulwich FC so special.
