The Old Boys League is an amateur football league for men over the age of 35. It is the largest adult male 11-a-side football league in Europe, with over 300 teams playing in 36 divisions. The league was formed in 2002 through the merger of the Old Boys Football League and the Southern Olympian League.
The league is based in London, but also has teams from around the home counties. The season runs from September to May, and each team plays 20-22 games. The top teams in each division are promoted, and the bottom teams are relegated.
The Old Boys League is a great way for men to stay active and enjoy the game of football after they have finished playing at a higher level. It is also a great way to meet new people and make friends.
The Old Boys Football League was founded in 1961 by a group of former amateur footballers who wanted to continue playing the game after they had finished playing at a higher level. The league initially had just a few teams, but it quickly grew in popularity. In 1999, the league merged with the Southern Olympian League to form the Amateur Football Combination.
The Amateur Football Combination is now Europe's largest adult male 11-a-side football league. It has over 300 teams playing in 36 divisions. The league is based in London, but also has teams from around the home counties.
The rules of the Old Boys League are the same as the rules of the FA's Adult Sunday League. This means that the games are played on a 110-yard pitch with two 45-minute halves. There are no substitutes, and the offside rule applies.
The league also has a number of its own rules, such as a maximum age limit of 35. There is also a rule that all players must have played at least one game for a senior club.
