Vasile Munteanu

I have worked with children for over 20 years as a Karate Instructor in a variety of settings, such as Nurseries, Primary

Schools, High Schools, Youth centers, Community events. In all settings, I found the same thing in common, physical activity and sports

has always brought children out of their shells and allowed many to blossom and really express themselves. 

In 2013 Elite FC London was established by myself and Alexandru Nistorescu, a professional football coach. Working in

Karate I felt that not enough was being done to give opportunities to children in the area of London and I opted to set up Elite FC

London. It started with lots of enthusiastic children all running around on Walthamstow and Edgware. I had no idea how far it could

come in a short space of time. This has allowed for many children and families to access Sports on a weekly basis and has brought a lot

of children together to represent Elite FC London. 

Elite FC London has grown from strength to strength, this down to the great community feel the club has and the commitment

and consistency from coaches, parents, guardians, and children all done with a lot of fun and positivity. Above everything, we promote

fair play, respect, and hard work at Elite FC London and hope to inspire the next generation to work hard, think forward, and achieve.
