The English Colleges Football Association work in close partnership with The Football Association and AoC Sport, to ensure we are at the forefront for the development of football in further education.

We take seriously our responsibility to service the needs of the game. With an estimated 10,000 plus players playing football every Wednesday afternoon in some capacity whether it be recreationally or competitvely, football is the number one participation sport in colleges.
