Why Kent Football Association
Kent FA was formed in 1881 and we are the not-for-profit governing body of football in Kent. As a not-for-profit organisation, all surplus funds are re-invested back into football development projects. Hence, our commercial success enables us to ensure that this beautiful game has the funding it needs to develop, sustain and progress across all areas of grassroots football within Kent.
Our goals at the Kent FA are to:
✔ grow participation across all areas
✔ promote diversity and inclusion - football is for everyone
✔ regulate the game for everyone to enjoy
Kent FA has one of the largest football communities in the UK with:
✔ over 3,800 affiliated football teams
✔ 51,639 players competing each weekend
✔ 40 sanctioned leagues
✔ 15,000 volunteers
We also have three Representative teams and organise 29 County Cup competitions.
