Love the new London Sporting Club. Great location and as a rugby fan I really enjoyed the first lunch with Eddie Jones. Very informative, interesting and funny.

The London Sporting Club is a refreshing, high quality opportunity to mix with people who have a passion for sport, business and entrepreneurship. The lunch events have an excellent guestlist, with high quality speakers. The experience is excellently curated by Ian, and is by far the best professional lunch event I have attended in London.

The first lunch I attended had Eddie Jones doing a Q& A, and I along with my guests believe it is the best lunch event we have attended. I then went to the David Coulthard lunch. My different set of guests said it was the best lunch format they had ever been to as well. The guest list, both of stars and significant figures in the business of sport was excellent, as were the interviews. The club's networking is the best I have ever seen. I have since met a number of interesting members at The Club and I look forward to doing business with them and many more lunches with top stars as well.

The London Sporting Club is the perfect place for anyone currently in the sports industry business, or for those wanting to be, to meet and connect with like-minded, passionate business people. Ian Stafford has realised the need for a sports industry network of sportsmen and women, brands, sponsors and entrepreneurs and has delivered beyond expectation.

The London Sporting Club is not your normal club, with amazing intimate lunches with the greatest in sport the club is something very special. I have been very fortune to attend two lunches and to listen to Eddie Jones and Sir Steve Redgrave, both whom were a great insight on what it takes to be the best at what you do. The club has a beautiful setting in the heart of London and is the perfect place to mix the world of sport and business.
Managing Director, The Rockstar Group of CompaniesI've been to every london sporting club event to date and will continue to keep going. Always great familiar faces but plenty of new ones each time! From the breakfast events to the lunch events the LSC team are brilliant and well led by Ian! But the best thing in my view is the network of people you meet and the willingness from LSC to help with the introductions you are seeking. Strongly recommended for those who love sport, lunches and making valuable connections."

The London Sporting Club has been great for us for so many reasons! We have UK offices in the North West (Warrington) and have harnessed the Club in Mayfair for a lot of our client meetings. We do a lot of business with sports people, so the Club is a natural setting for us all to relax. Ian and his team have been very kind as they continue to introduce us to other members, many of whom we are now doing business with. Well done London Sporting Club, many years of happiness & profit to come!
Director, The Ad Store
The London Sporting Club is the place to meet top ex-sports professionals and business executives involved in the world of sport. I have been fortunate enough to attend a Lions breakfast with ex-All Black Nick Evans and lunch with cricket legend Kumar Sangakarra. Kumar is an engaging and intelligent speaker and came across as a great person. The lunch was first class, with fantastic food, entertainment and people. Ian was entertaining MC and got the blend right between information and creating a sense of fun. My view is that the club can grow into something very special in the world of sport and I look forward to being part of it.
Managing Director, Sport Mobile Ltd
The London Sporting Club is becoming a big part of the Sportmobile calendar with its monthly sporting lunches and recently a very successful golf day at The Centurion Club. We are already in discussions with two major sporting governing bodies since we joined the club 3 months ago. I spend a lot time networking and to be honest The London Sporting Club is a breath of fresh air with its relaxed environment and friendly route to gaining new business
Founder & MD, Huckleberry Sport
I was introduced to the London Sporting Club a few months ago and didn't have to think twice about becoming a member. If you already are, or are looking to do business within the Sports Industry, there's no better place to network and meet like-minded entrepreneurs than LSC. Every member here truly embraces the power of networking and supports each other's business with valued introductions and recommendations. Not to mention the excellent business breakfasts and lunches with exceptional guest speakers, giving you an opportunity to have your picture taken and meet some true sporting legends.

The London Sporting Club has become the number one where not only do you meet your favourite sports people, but you can sit amongst like-minded people in an environment around all different sports and business. Ian Stafford has created the most incredible atmosphere at the Club, where his art of professionalism is unbound. He is a master at interviewing, down to making Michael Johnson's event recently go with, laughter and applause, where even Michael did not want to leave. This intimate lunch was the best lunch I have been to in years. You could not get a better networking occasion to go with the mix of sportsmen and women, entrepreneurs and city folk.
