Autumn Thursday's is an amateur football league based in the United Kingdom. It was founded in 1925 and is currently composed of over 100 teams. The league plays its games on Thursday evenings during the autumn and winter months.
Autumn Thursday's was founded in 1925 by a group of friends who wanted to play football in a more relaxed and informal setting than the professional leagues. The league quickly grew in popularity and now has teams from all over the UK.
The league has a number of rules that are designed to ensure that it remains an amateur competition. For example, players are not allowed to be paid to play and there are limits on the amount of travel that teams can make.
Autumn Thursday's is divided into a number of divisions, based on the level of ability of the teams. The top division is the Premier Division, followed by the First Division, the Second Division, and so on.
Teams play each other home and away, with the top teams at the end of the season being promoted to a higher division and the bottom teams being relegated to a lower division.
In addition to the regular league season, Autumn Thursday's also hosts a number of cup competitions. The most prestigious cup competition is the Autumn Thursday's Cup, which is open to all teams in the league.
The league also hosts a number of other cup competitions, such as the Challenge Cup, the Veterans Cup, and the Ladies Cup.
