League Details

  • Matches are (apart from some evening games in April / May) played on Saturdays 2.30pm (mostly) and Sundays 10.45 or 2.00pm. Teams are broadly workplace based, with additional players recruited on a random basis from outside the firm/company.
  • Clubs are encouraged to secure their own home ground. Teams without their own ground have had the option, last season, of hiring a pitch at the Mayfield Utd complex who facilitate the League.
  • The annual team registration fee is €170 plus €30 bond to cover player/club fines plus €10 for EACH PLAYER registered. Fines are applied for club and individual player indiscipline (€30 minimum) along, of course, with suspensions.
  • Referee costs PER GAME are currently €55 (Premier Division) and €48 (First Division and other competitions).
