Players Home


West Riding has rich history in football so, as you would expect from a county that is so passionate about the game, there are no shortage of different forms of football for you to get involved in. From the small-sided game, such as Mini-Soccer for young children taking their first steps in the game, to Futsal and of course the hugely popular five-a-side, to the more traditional eleven-a-side game.

More than 45,000 people play and enjoy football in West Riding every week. There are more than 4000 teams that make up the membership of West Riding FA, all involved in regular league football.

As a Player, there are many opportunities for you to play football, whatever your age, gender, ability, race, culture or background.

You can get involved in football on a more casual basis through our partnership with the FA Mars ‘Just Play’ scheme and through several recognised small sided football centres across the county. West Riding FA is committed to providing opportunities to play the game we all love in every community.
