About BFA

The prestigious BFA UK Summer League season commences in May each year and runs through until the end of summer. The project commenced in 1997, when Sporting Foundation created the Summer League with just 8 teams.

It was a pioneering project, the first of its kind in London and possibly in the UK. It was a ground-breaking project because at the time no one played league football in the Summer. The league straightaway reduced tension between youths from different estates, reduced anti-social behaviour and loitering in the streets and reduced young people getting involved in drugs and alcohol and petty crime.
