Scottish Amateur Football Association

About The Scottish Amateur Football Association


The Scottish Amateur Football Association was founded in 1909 and formed to legislate for and to foster the game of football as played by amateurs. The SAFA is a truly national association with members in all areas of Scotland from the Shetlands through the Highlands and Islands to the Borders catering for open age adult amateur football.





The Association was founded in 1909 with three original members, Queen's Park FC, Glasgow & District FP League and the Schools Association.
