THERE'S SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

Whether you are male, female, young, old or disabled, whether you want to play 11v11, small sided, formally, or informally, Amateur FA has an extensive programme of footballing opportunities to suit all.

From small-sided, such as Mini Soccer for young children taking their first steps in the game, Futsal and of course the hugely popular five-a-side, to the more traditional 11 v 11 format of the game – there is something for everyone!

However you choose to enjoy football, there are clubs throughout the region that make up the membership of the Amateur FA, each of whom are involved in regular league football.

In addition, you can also find out how to get involved in football on a more casual basis through The FA and Mars JustPlay scheme.

Representative Football

Amateur FA currently has three Representative sides - Under-16s, Under-18s and Seniors.

The aim of Representative Football is to offer young footballers who are not under professional contracts the opportunity to play team football and provide them with a platform to be spotted by professional and semi-professional clubs.
