The Hertfordshire Cheetahs American Football Club have been playing in the UK since the mid-80s when they began life as the Chiltern Cheetahs, and are currently the 3rd longest continuously playing club in the UK. The club moved to Watford and became the Watford Cheetahs in the mid-naughties, before transferring to St Albans Rugby Club in 2014 and becoming the Hertfordshire Cheetahs.

Playing in Black & Gold, the Cheetahs have a Flag (11-14), Youth (14-Under 17), Junior (17-Under 19) and Adult(18+) squads and remain the only competitive American Football Club in Hertfordshire, attracting talented players and coaches from across a massive catchment area extending far outside of the county.

With approx 160 members, 20+ coaches and a managing committee of 8+ we’re built for inclusion and growth.

All squads for the club now train and play home games at one of the finest, community, floodlit locations in the area:

St Albans Rugby Club
Oaklands Lane
