Stirling and District AFA
The Stirling and District Amateur Football Association (SDAFA) is a football (soccer) league competition, primarily for amateur clubs in the Stirlingshire area of Scotland. It was formed in 1947 and is affiliated to the Scottish Amateur Football Association.
The SDAFA is split into four divisions, a Premier Division of 12 teams, Division One which contains 11 teams and the bottom two tiers, Division Two & Three which both contain 14 clubs respectively. Each league has two clubs which are automatically promoted/relegated between divisions with the exception of Division Three, from which there is no relegation. As a stand-alone Association and not part of Scotland's pyramid system, the Premier Division does not act as a feeder league and as such there is currently no promotion available.
The current season is the 2022-23 season. The Premier Division is currently being led by Bonnybridge, who have won 7 of their 8 games so far. They are followed by Sunnyside and Callander, who are both on 6 points.
The SDAFA also runs a number of cup competitions, including the League Cup, the Challenge Cup and the President's Cup. The League Cup is the most prestigious cup competition, and is contested by all teams in the Premier Division and Division One. The Challenge Cup is open to all teams in the SDAFA, while the President's Cup is for teams in Division Two and Division Three.
