Amateur Football Combination action

The AFC was founded in 1919 by a group of amateur football clubs in London. The original intention was to provide a competitive league for teams that were not affiliated to the Football Association.

The AFC has grown steadily over the years and now has teams from all over London and the Home Counties. The league is divided into 19 divisions, with the top division being the Premier Division.
