Stenhousemuir Football Club was formed in 1884 and has been a part of the local community for over 130 years. In more recent times the club changed its legal status to a Community Interest Company (CiC), the first professional football club in the UK to do so, this change ensured that the club would be protected from private ownership and remain fully committed to the local community. The club has one of the largest community programmes of any club in Scotland, with around 500 people from the local community taking part in football and fitness sessions each week, over 10,000 people involved annually and approximately 250,000 visitors to Ochilview Park each year. Stenhousemuir FC is looking to continue to grow as a club, maintain and foster new links with local community and business, with Ochilview seen as a positive welcoming community hub that serves and inspires the local community.
