Local Leagues

Play local, competitive football through one of our affiliated leagues

In Sheffield & Hallamshire we have several league opportunities for teams to play in. Some of our leagues offer local competition with little travel while others spread across the county to provide as competitive football as possible. 

All leagues are formally structured with rules in place.  Leagues are run by volunteers who work with clubs, teams and players to ensure football is a safe, inclusive and enjoyable environment.

The League's reputation as one of the most progressive was further highlighted by it becoming the first male adult Sunday League in the County FA area to sign up to the FA's Respect campaign and it was the first Adult Sunday League in the County FA area to be awarded one of The FA's Respect Awards and it has been commended twice more by The FA since then. Good standards of behaviour by all participants are the cornerstone of the League’s approach, together with good quality facilities.
