History

The Leeds Sunday Football League match

The Leeds Sunday Football League was founded in 1921 by a group of local football enthusiasts. The league initially had just four divisions, but it has since expanded to its current size of 11 divisions.

The LSFL has seen a number of changes over the years. In the early days, the league was dominated by amateur teams, but in recent years there has been an increase in the number of semi-professional and professional teams.

The LSFL has also been affected by the rise of Sunday league football in the UK. In the 1970s and 1980s, there were over 100 Sunday leagues in Leeds, but this number has since declined.

Despite these changes, the LSFL remains a popular and important part of the footballing landscape in Leeds.
