Summer Football Available

Pre-season leagues announced. Find out more!

With the opportunities to play reduced this past season due to the pandemic, the Amateur Football Alliance have sought to provide an offer to clubs over the off-season.

In partnership with the London Playing Fields Foundation, we are offering a Summer 8v8 (July) and Pre-Season 11v11 (August) competition for both Open-Age and Veteran teams at Douglas Eyre Sports Centre (E17 7HE).

The 8-a-side competition will run for four weeks in July; with Open-Age playing Mondays and Veterans on Tuesdays. Matches will kick-off at 19:00 and 20:15 and be 30 minutes each way. Teams will play in a round-robin before a play-off week.

The 11-a-side competition will take place over 4 weeks in August, again with Open-Age on Mondays and Veterans on Tuesday in a round-robin league format. The 35 minute each way fixtures will start at 19:00 and 20:30.

If you would like to enter any of the competitions, please complete the registration form below before Wednesday 30th June for the 8v8 competition and Wednesday 28th July for the 11-a-side one.

The cost for an 8-a-side team is £212.50 and for an 11-a-side team it is £400. Initially entry is subject to one team per club, but if spaces allow multiple team entries will be permitted. Entries will be accepted on a first come, first served basis due to the capacities within each competition. All entries will need to have had their affiliation for 2021/22 completed before the competition commences. The affiliation window is now open.
