Celebrating the Centenary of The Valley
The Valley was first built on former sand and chalk pits by an army of volunteers in August 1919. The first game at The Valley was against Summerstown which ended in 2-0 victory, and just two years later Exeter City were defeated 1-0 in the first ever Football League game to be played at the ground .
Although its aesthetics have changed in many ways over the past 100 years, one thing has always remained the same: The Valley is the very heart of the identity of the Addicks. For generations of supporters it has been, and will always remain, home, sweet home. Join the community in coming together for an unforgettable experience of sleeping pitchside in this iconic stadium whilst raising funds for CACT and Children with Cancer UK.
