Independent Schools Football Association (ISFA)

The Independent Schools Football Association Ltd. (ISFA) is affiliated to The FA and is recognised as the body responsible for the development of the game in the independent school sector.

It aims to create football opportunities for children within the sector by organising and encouraging competitions, representative teams, and development opportunities, as well as participation through regional tournaments, block friendly fixtures and internal school football.

This is a great way for Independent schools to give boys and girls the opportunity to get involved with football in a competitive and fun, social environment.
