The Leicestershire and Rutland County FA is dedicated to delivering football for all. We are committed to delivery of and expansion of community grass roots teams across Leicester City Leicestershire, and Rutland.

We pride ourselves by the breath of inclusive football clubs we have supported to grow over the years.

The club being affiliated to the FA assures that:
