London Football Association: Bringing the Game Closer to You.

As time has passed the popularity of the game of football has increased. This has lead to the need for county associations. The London Football Association was established on the 2nd of February 1882, by TheFA. TheFA set-up the London Football Association to take on the administrative responsibilities of metropolitan football, while TheFA concentrated on the laws and rules governing the game and developing and maintaining the international game.

Today, the primary objective of the London Football Association is to help the game grow and develop. This is done whilst, and not to the detriment of the game, by retaining and helping the workforce at the grassroots level of football. They do this by following national strategies and programs outlined by TheFA.

Every season poses new challenges and the London Football Association is always growing with the changes and the times, thus, keeping them modern and fresh.
