History of Coventry Amateur Football League

The Coventry Amateur Football League was founded in 1936 as the works team of the Coventry Tile Company, playing their home games at Butts Stadium, the former home of Coventry R.F.C. In 1946 the club's name changed to Coventry Amateurs, and two years later they moved to a new ground at Kirby's Corner.

In 1974 the club turned semi-professional and changed their name to Coventry Sporting. They competed in the West Midlands Regional League and reached the First Round proper of the FA Cup for the first time in 1975–76, where they were drawn at home to Tranmere Rovers, then top of Division Four.
