about Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA

Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA is a non-profit organisation that is responsible for the development and governance of grassroots football since 1867. We work in partnership with the FA to deliver the national game strategy across our county to ensure everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful game. 

Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA has a twofold remit; firstly it governs and administers the game, which means providing the infrastructure that actually allows the game to take place. This involves the recruitment, retention and the appointment to matches of approximately 1000 referees.

The County FA administers eight cup competitions, with over 800 teams of boys, girls, women and men of varying standards taking part. It sanctions leagues and affiliates approximately 2,500 teams and registers thousands of players, in addition to providing a fair and transparent disciplinary system dealing with cautions, dismissals and resulting suspensions.

Secondly Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA works hard to develop the game by increasing participation and raising standards, ensuring that as many people as possible, from whatever backgrounds, have opportunities to play the national game.
