The Manchester Jewish Soccer League (MJSL) is an amateur football league based in Manchester, England. It was founded in 1908 and is the oldest Jewish football league in the world. The MJSL currently has over 40 teams competing in a variety of divisions.
The MJSL was founded in 1908 by a group of Jewish footballers who wanted to create a league where they could play without discrimination. The league initially had just four teams, but it quickly grew in popularity and now has over 40 teams.
