Biographical / Historical

This organisation is essentially the governing body of intercollegiate men's football. It arranges and regulates the league as well as six-a-side, "Cuppers", shield and plate knock out competitions. It probably came into existence in the 1870/80s as a competition hosted by the Cambridge University Association Football Club. The number of college teams in the league grew over time, and the competition came to include teams from outside the university. Further information about the league's activities is on its website at
