Thousands of people play the beautiful game across our vast County. From the traditional 11v11 format to small sided football, Futsal, recreational kickabouts and the hugely popular 5-a-side format of the game, there’s football for everyone.

With a rich history of football, and some of the oldest clubs in the country, there are plenty of local teams, leagues and opportunities for you to take part.

At Birmingham FA we also work hard to support the local community to play in a fun, safe and inclusive environment, as well as being on hand to help you get involved in the game.
