The Devon County Veterans League was founded in 1983 by a group of men who wanted to continue playing football after they had reached the age of 35. The league started with just a few teams, but it has grown steadily over the years and now has over 50 teams competing in three divisions.
The league is affiliated with the Devon County Football Association, which provides it with support and guidance. The DCFA also helps to promote the league and to attract new players.
The Devon County Veterans League has three divisions: Division One, Division Two, and Division Three. The teams in each division are ranked according to their results, and the top teams at the end of the season are promoted to the next division. The bottom teams are relegated to the next lower division.
The league also runs several cup competitions, including the Devon County Veterans Cup, the Devon County Veterans Challenge Cup, and the Devon County Veterans Plate.
The Devon County Veterans League follows the rules of the Football Association. However, there are some special rules for veterans football, such as a reduced playing time (70 minutes) and a lower offside rule.
