However you choose to enjoy playing football, the Isle of Man has an opportunity for you to get involved. There are a number of different formats of the game for all ages, genders, races, cultures and backgrounds. Whether you prefer playing the tradition 11v11 or would like to try an alternative form of the game in Futsal, or whether you are a young player looking to start out at a junior team or an over 35 player looking to play in the Veterans league there are opportunities for you.
Information on the 26 established Charter Standard league clubs, simply go to the 'Clubs' section of the website. A number of these clubs offer junior football up to the age of U15 boys/U16 girls. For information on junior teams contact the club or alternatively contact the Isle of Man Junior League:

The Isle of Man FA also provide small sided football in the form of the 7-a-side business league and the Futsal league. These leagues run in the summer with more information being available from the Isle of Man FA Development Team.
It is never too late to start playing in the Veterans League which is ran throughout the normal league season. Fixtures are played on Sunday afternoons so might get you out of any DIY jobs for an afternoon!
