Merseyside Youth Football League

The Merseyside Youth Football League (MYFL) is an amateur football league for youth players in Merseyside, England. It was founded in 1920 and is affiliated to the English Football Association (FA). The MYFL currently has over 100 clubs and 10,000 players.


The MYFL was founded in 1920 by a group of local football enthusiasts. The league initially had just a few teams, but it quickly grew in popularity. In the early years, the MYFL was mostly made up of teams from Liverpool and the surrounding area. However, the league has since expanded to include teams from all over Merseyside.
