By Ellie Miles, Documentary Curator Did you know that London Underground has its own football league? Every year two divisions of teams compete for the cup.

Since then it’s been opened up to all TfL employees, and players can transfer without changing jobs! Piccadilly FC players in their new moquette-inspired 2020 kit, London Transport Museum, September 2020 Transport employee sports teams have a long ..read more
