Army Football is a County within the Football Association and is committed to the advancement of Football within the Army at all levels. Football is the most widely enjoyed game in the Army and the Army Football Association provides administrative support and promotes the game at all levels.
It is based in Aldershot, the home of Army sports, at Fox Lines by the Aldershot Military Stadium.
There is a full time staff employed to administer the game worldwide and a Management Committee who formulate policy for Army Football in accordance with Football Association Rules and guidelines.
Football continues to be played competitively throughout the Army. It remains the ‘soldier’s sport’ and is enjoyed by all ranks at various levels of competition throughout the season.
The British Army has not been so heavily committed to operations for many years and the consequences of this for competitive team sport are felt across the sporting arena. It is often difficult for footballers of representative standard to be available for team selection; perhaps this is an increasing trend.
Yet the enthusiasm by players, coaches and officials to continue in this most favoured sport remains exceptionally high. Sports facilities and equipment continue to be widely available and in increasing quality.
The resources required to run football throughout the Army, at all levels, remain available. Army Football is in a healthy state and we seek to improve upon this standing.
There is no doubting, however, that we would not be able to provide the service that we do to football, without the support of our sponsors.
We are therefore extremely grateful to HPE, Team Army, Towergate Insurance, Trinity Insurance, Fujitsu, MooD, Selex Communications, RBL, Ultra Electronics and Army Sports Lottery for their continued support.
