County Football Association

The County Football Associations are the local governing bodies of association football in England and the Crown dependencies. County FAs exist to govern all aspects of football in England. They are responsible for administering club and player registration as well as promoting development amongst those bodies and referees .

Most of the County FAs align roughly along historic county boundaries, although some cover more than one county, and some of the major cities, particularly those with a strong football tradition, have their own FAs. The Sheffield FA was the first to be created, in 1867. Several institutions have county FA status in their own right, including Cambridge and Oxford universities, the armed forces, and the Amateur Football Alliance, which has a strong presence in the south-east of England.

The county football associations, along with their fellow associations from Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland run the Tesco Cup, a tournament for young players sponsored by the retailers Tesco. At present there is a boy's tournament at Under 13 level and two girl's tournaments at Under 14 and Under 16 levels.

County football associations host 'County cups' - knockout cup competitions held at a sub-regional level, which are open to all affiliated members of the County FA. Typically County FAs will host County Cup competitions at the following levels: senior, intermediate, junior, women's, veterans, senior Sunday football, intermediate Sunday football and junior Sunday football.
