Football belongs to, and should be enjoyed by, anyone who wants to participate in it. 

As the governing body of the game the Island for over 120 years, Isle of Man County Football Association is responsible for setting standards and values to apply throughout the game at every level.

We are responsible for providing the structure and support that enables our players, coaches, volunteers and referees to develop. Our utmost priority is that every participant in our county is given the opportunity to develop in a progressive and enjoyable environment.

In addition to our governance responsibilities, we concentrate heavily on the development of the local game and maintain a strong emphasis on the evolution of players, coaches, volunteers and referees. By promoting 'Football For All' we encourage participation across all sections of society. You can read our Equality Statement here.

By developing innovative programmes and cultivating opportunities in alignment with our governing body (The FA), we deliver the National Game Strategy in our county. We are also immensely proud of our thriving culture throughout the non-professional game, a sector widely referred to as grassroots football.

As a county we believe it essential to uphold our traditions and embrace the legacy of our past. However, we are very much a progressive County FA which is happy to celebrate its history without residing on it. Although the Isle of Man County Football Association has been the governing body of all association football in the county for over 120 years, today we are an energetic, innovative and ever-changing organisation.

Our goal is to grow participation, promote diversity and regulate the game for everyone to enjoy.
Over 4,000 players of all ages and the many volunteers help the Isle of Man FA keep the grassroots game going.

We remain as passionate as ever about the success of football in the county.
