Our league has been running since 1946 at the iconic Hackney Marshes in East London and is the most widely recognised grassroots football league in the UK. We are an integral part of the community in East London and surrounding areas, offering opportunities for adults of all ages and backgrounds to play football together.
Our league has seen players reach the professional ranks; it was on the Hackney Marshes that heroes of English football like Bobby Moore to David Beckham started their football craft. It was also the setting for the Park Life Nike commercial featuring Eric Cantona, Ian Wright, Robbie Fowler and for the Adidas campaign featuring Lionel Messi.
We always welcome new teams, players, referees and committee members to join our friendly league.
