New team applications
Starting a new team?
Want a fresh challenge with a different league?
The Essex Alliance Football League is now inviting new clubs and teams to apply to join us for the 2023/24 season.
Why the Essex Alliance Football League?
We believe we offer a competitive and well-run football league that provides football for open-age (16+) teams in the areas of Havering, Barking & Dagenham, Redbridge, Newham, Waltham Forest, Harlow and Epping Forest.
Following our approval to join the National League System at Step 7 of the non-league football pyramid, we are now positioned to be able to offer a full pathway for our clubs to progress through.
We have a number of divisions offering sides of all abilities the chance to take to the field on a Saturday afternoon. There is a great network of clubs and referees within our League along with a strong committee of individuals that work tirelessly to support the running of this League in a smooth fashion.
With an impressive website and social media presence, add this to cup finals exclusively being played at a National League football stadium, we believe we offer a very competitive experience!
After a difficult couple of seasons recently due to the pandemic, we remain as eager as always to ensure our clubs enjoy the experience of getting out onto the pitch each Saturday afternoon.
