Lincs FA

The journey has been a long and eventful one since Lincs FA formation in 1881 at a meeting held at the Queens Hotel, Lincoln on Saturday 17th September.

Just a small number of clubs joined with the promise of control, organisation, planning and increased participation but today we have over 1000 clubs under our banner, stretching across one of the largest geographical counties in the country, but those original promises are still at the forefront of our operations today.

There have been many changes over the years and the Associations change to become a Limited Company was the most significant.

Football administration has also changed dramatically during the past few years and our Association has been at the forefront of that change.

With our motto “Team work at all times” we hope that the next few decades ahead allow us to use the power of football to build a better future and to lead the successful development of football at every level.

The information detailed below should hopefully give you an idea of the departments and where we can help you with your enquiry about football in Lincolnshire.
