Further and Higher Education Football

Performance or recreational opportunities to play

Birmingham County FA plays host to multiple Further & Higher Education providers.

These providers offer the highest quality of educational experience as well as the opportunities to participate in performance or recreational football programmes. Please find a list of our Further Education providers at the bottom of this page that offer Football in Education programmes. (If you wish for your programme to be added to this list please contact Harley.Hetherington@BirminghamFA.com)

Our Further Education providers have the opportunity to compete within our Birmingham FA Education League. At present, the league hosts 3 divisions for the 16-19 age category, 2 for male participation and a pan-disability division. These divisions were formed to increase the opportunity for recreational competitive sport without the worry of competing against high performance opposition. We also host 2 University divisions, the male league was won by University of Birmingham Dev 1 in the 2021/22 season, meanwhile the female league is entering it’s debut season.

Of our 8 Higher Education providers many host regular ‘IntraMural’ activities. University of Birmingham posted 126 teams participating in their ‘Campus’ league last season and this number has grown with the addition of University of Warwick. Furthermore our Universities benefit from CPD opportunity, last year a member of our football development team visited University College Birmingham and delivered an interactive EE Playmaker course.
