The league was established in its current guise prior to the 2015-16 season through a partnership between the FA and CP Sport. Prior to this, the FA regional CP centres of excellence were a key part of the FA talent pathway and they participated in monthly fixtures.
However, with the continued evolution of the talent pathway, it became clear that a national league for grassroots footballers was required.
The FA worked with CP Sport and County FAs to establish a league format and network of CP football teams across the country, many of whom are now embedded within pre-existing England Football Accredited Clubs.
A voluntary based league committee structure is now in place and the leagues comprises nine adult teams, with junior provision a big priority moving forwards. The teams take part in regional and national fixtures through September to May. Teams from the league also compete for the national cup competition in February.
The winning team from the national cup will compete against the league winner at the FA Disability Cup finals.
