About Us

As an innovative and professional organisation, Devon County Football Association is a not-for-profit organisation responsible for the development and governance of grassroots football in Devon since 1888.

We are the guardian of grassroots football in Devon and we are committed to providing opportunities for all our communities to engage in football activities. We have delegated powers from The Football Association to manage rules and regulations to ensure fair play and safeguarding in the grassroots game, both on and off the pitch. We are responsible for developing the local game and strive to positively influence football participation for all, regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation.

We support and develop over 34,000 players within 2,000 teams that play in over 400 clubs within the 17 sanctioned leagues. We also support thousands of volunteers, coaches and administrators and help develop and grow over 500 match officials as they develop a career within the game.
