Sportsman League

The Sportsman League is an amateur football league in London, England. It was founded in 1949 and currently has over 100 clubs participating in its various divisions.


The Sportsman League was founded in 1949 by a group of football enthusiasts who wanted to create a competitive and organized league for amateur players. The league initially had just two divisions, but it has since grown to include over 100 clubs and 1,000 players.
