What is the Youth FA Premier League?
The Youth FA Premier League (YFP) is the highest level of youth football in England for boys under the age of 18. It was founded in 2012 and is run by the Football Association (FA).
The YFP consists of 24 teams, each representing a professional football club in England. The teams are divided into two divisions, the North Division and the South Division.
The YFP season runs from August to May, with each team playing each other twice, once at home and once away. The top two teams in each division at the end of the season are promoted to the Premier League 2, the second tier of youth football in England. The bottom two teams in each division are relegated to the National League North or National League South.
How to watch the Youth FA Premier League
The YFP is not televised, but there are a number of ways to watch the games. Some clubs stream their games live on their websites, and there are also a number of websites that provide live text commentary of the games.
You can also watch the YFP games in person. Tickets for the games are usually available to purchase online or at the stadium on the day of the game.
