Team Nineteen

Team Nineteen is The FA’s intra-mural football programme for Further Education, developed by The Football Association along with delivery partners English Colleges FA (ECFA) and British Colleges Sport (BCS).

Started in November 2011, Team Nineteen has a clear aim and concept of addressing the drop off in football participation for 16 to 19 year olds, through student-led football leagues. The focus really is on the experience of the students!

The concept has been a huge success, with over 150 FE institutions signed up as Team Nineteen members and over 6,700 students participating. Furthermore, 70% of Team Nineteen leagues are supported by students as part of Student Management Teams, ensuring activity is truly student led.
