Motspur was formed in 2016 for past and present members of LUCA affiliated clubs. The club closed in March 2023.
The name ‘Motspur’ was chosen by the LUCA Council in 2016 after extensive consultation. Motspur Park in Surrey was the location of the former University of London Athletics Club training ground. The site was sold to Fulham Football club and the track dismantled. The clubhouse and stand still exists.
The Shield is a combination of the University of London shield (representing the colleges of the UofL) and the blue waves of the Greater London Council Shield (representing the universities not part of UofL)
