The Association was formed in 1998 with the amalgamation of the Lothian Amateur F.A. and the Edinburgh Amateur F.A.
The Association maintains a policy of affording everyone in the Edinburgh and Lothians the opportunity to play in organised competition at their own level. It is the largest Association in Scotland now having over 100 member clubs and since the merger has been able to boast of having the Scottish Amateur Cup winners, the East of Scotland Cup winners and South of Scotland Cup winners.
The Lothian & Edinburgh AFA upholds the objects of amateur football to promote, foster and develop the game of Association football by offering both new and established clubs and their players the platform to perform at a level which suits them.
The Association operates a Saturday Section and a Sunday Section. The Saturday Section has 6 divisions for the 2016/17 Season - Premier, Championship, Lothian West and Lothian East, Edinburgh West, and Edinburgh East. The Sunday Section has 5 Divisions - Sunday Morning Division 1, Sunday Morning Division 2 and on Sunday afternoon, Premier Division, Division 1 and Division 2.
It is our hope that all our clubs and players enjoy their football at whatever level whether or not they are successful at competition level.
The Association is seeking to add to its list of referees. Any official interested in offering his/her services to the Association should contact Rex Gallacher (Saturday) on 01506 654974 or Darren Connell(Sunday) on 07745 049934.
