About the Club

Mighty Shane is one of the oldest and best football clubs in Taipei.

And we're always looking for new players. Get in touch!

Club History

Mighty Shane Football Club is one of the oldest and most storied clubs in Taipei.


Started in 1998 as a pub team of Shane English teachers, the club has grown into one of the most prominent in Taiwan, and a mainstay in the East Asian football scene.


Based in Taipei, and backed by the most popular football pub in the city, MSFC trains regularly and competes in the Taiwan International Football League (TIFL), as well as tournaments in and around Taiwan.


While football is at the core of MSFC, we also enjoy the social side of playing amateur football in Taiwan.

Our Competition

Mighty Shane compete primarily in the Taiwan International Football League (TIFL)

The TIFL is an amateur football league comprising thirteen Taipei-based teams. The league is split into two divisions, with promotion and relegation keeping things competitive between them.

We fight off Sunday morning hangovers and sore heads to play for the league championship every week.

Mighty Shane are one of the founding members of the league.

We were league champions in 2012 and division two champions in 2018.

We also compete in a domestic cup tournament, which is played throughout the season and culminates in a knockout competition.


Our season typically runs from March through November, with a break during the heat of the summer.


Games are played nearly every Sunday on pitches across the city.

Football Tournaments

Mighty Shane FC compete in tournaments in Taiwan and abroad every year.


These are usually one- or two-day events played by teams from all over Taiwan and East Asia.


We try to compete in as many of these as possible, as they are always a great time out.


Mighty Shane have recently competed in the following tournaments:


  • Tainan Tournament

  • Bangkok Cup

  • Penghu Penguin Cup

  • Keelung Ocean Cup

  • Saigon 7s Tournament

Training Sessions

Mighty Shane train every Thursday evening from 8:00 to 10:00 at the WanHua Sports Center near Beimen MRT station. 

We also typically train on Sunday afternoons when we don't have TIFL games.

Players who want to join the training sessions should reach out via the website, or join the dedicated Facebook group.


And as always, there's the opportunity for a few cheeky cans after the sessions!
