About Daan Football Club

Daan Football Club was created in 2005 by a group of locally-based international expats who started playing football for fun in Da’an Park in central Taipei. As more players joined and team numbers began to swell, they decided to create an official team that could play and compete against other local and expat teams in the region.

Since its inception, Daan F.C. has won several trophies including the On Tap Premier League in the 2009 season. The team has also competed in the V6 6-a-side league twice, while also participating in several other football tournaments both in Taiwan and Internationally.

Da’an FC who currently sit in 2nd place in the OnTap premier league would like to extend an invitation to any Taiwan Mandarin Institute students to attend the Open Training sessions on Wednesdays between 19.30hrs and 21.00hrs at Gongguan Elementary school.
