Belfast Old Boys League

The Belfast Old Boys League is an amateur football league in Northern Ireland. It was founded in 1923 and currently consists of 13 divisions, including four intermediate sections, three junior sections, and six reserve sections.


The league was founded on 4 July 1923 at a meeting of fourteen clubs at the Clarence Place Hall, Donegall Square East, Belfast. The initial teams were from public bodies, private associations, schools, and firms. The league was affiliated to the Irish Football Association (IFA) as a junior league in August. The first season was 1923/24 and by the time the first fixtures were played on 22 September, there were 16 member clubs. The Co-operative and C.P.A. were tied at the top of the table, but the Co-operative won a play-off to be crowned the first Amateur League champions.
