About

Supporting and developing football in the sheffield & hallamshire region since 1867.

The Sheffield & Hallamshire County Football Association, a non-profit organisation, is responsible for the development, administration and governance of all affiliated football within a 20 mile radius of Sheffield Cathedral.

Our region has historically made a huge contribution to the development of football. We are the oldest County FA, the area includes the oldest ground in the world and is home to the world's oldest football club, and the Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup is the fourth oldest surviving cup competition.

This unique heritage is important, but we must also acknowledge our region’s role in developing the game and delivering success during more recent times – The first Parklife Hub City, the largest junior league in Europe and of course several elite performers from our region have represented England at Men’s and Women’s international level during recent tournaments.

This year, we will look forward to being the only County FA region to welcome the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 to two host venues - Rotherham’s New York Stadium and Bramall Lane, the oldest stadium in the world still hosting professional football matches.

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.
