Early historyEdit

Established in 1910, it was one of the first clubs in the country, alongside the Manila Jockey Club (1900s), Manila Sporting Club (1906), the Sandow Athletic Club (1909) and Manila Nomads Sports Club (1914).[2][1][3] It was the club of Paulino Alcántara from 1916–1918, who also played for FC Barcelona, as well as Virgilio Lobregat. The club represented the Philippines in the 1913 Far East Games where the Philippines won over China. The winning goal was made by Rafael Iboleon.


A new group began talks in 2017 regarding the possible revival of the Bohemian Sporting Club. The following year the ownership group established the Bohemian Football School in honor of Paulino Alcántara as a vehicle to draw in youth players for the club. The group plans to organize a first team for the club by January 2020.[4]
