As the founder of 1863 Futbol Club (1863 F.C.), Amir Browder has played futbol his entire life and felt that the game was missing an apparel line that embodies the footballer’s lifestyle. Browder was also fascinated by the remarkable history of the sport and decided to name the company 1863 Futbol Club (1863 F.C.) because the official rules of the Football Association were founded in 1863, by a gentlemen named Ebenezer Mobley Cobb. 1863 F.C.’s goal is to not only represent craftsmanship and premium quality for gentlemen who play the sport, but also to dedicate a distinguished apparel line for those who appreciate quality garments. The brand philosophy is based off of three principles: form, function and fabrics.
It is 1863 F.C.’s mission to become the premier men's futbol apparel line with a concentration on t-shirts, sweatshirts, sweatpants and accessories. This will be accomplished by offering fair prices, the best selection, and a knowledgeable staff to assist customers in any way. By striving to exceed all customers’ expectations, we will position ourselves as a quality craftsmen-clothing line, designed with our consumer in mind every step of the way. In the words of Pelé, “Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” It is this philosophy that has lead 1863 F.C. to structure themselves to be a reputable brand that demonstrates excellence by also giving back to the community. 1863 F.C. donates a portion of its time and resources to The Across the Bridge Futbol Foundation, which exposes local DC inner city youth to the game of futbol and encourages them to stay positively active.
