Inclusion and Anti-Discrimination

Leagues & Clubs


League football in merseyside is thriving.

There are currently 50 affiliated and sanctioned leagues through Liverpool FA which include competitive football in organised Adult, Youth, Mini Soccer, Disability, Futsal and Small Sided Leagues.

Liverpool FA understands the importance of leagues and their role in providing a safe and structured environment that allows everyone connected with the game to enjoy their participation in it. Our commitment is demonstrated in the creation of a Youth and Adult League Forums. Such forums ensure that Liverpool FA can identify areas of support that are required to help the league thrive and to be a first point of contact to all league officials seeking advice or help.

There are currently over 800 member clubs that facilitate over 3200 teams which make up the membership of Liverpool FA, each of whom are involved in regular league football. In addition, there are also hundreds of other teams registered at several FA affiliated small sided football centres across the city.

From mini-soccer clubs that provide a platform that supports the development and enjoyment of our very youngest players, to the adult game which spans across small-sided football, amateur, semi pro and of course the professional game. Grassroots football in Liverpool will thrive because of several influencing factors, but our clubs and those individuals who are dedicated and committed to help run them are the heartbeat of a successful grassroots game.
