Welcome

Welcome to the official website of the Oxford Mail Youth Football League. We are an FA Charter Standard League run entirely by volunteers whose primary aims are to provide a sound framework which enables local youth football teams to facilitate football for young people in a safe, fun, fair and competitive environment and to the highest possible standards

We are proud of our history and the fact that what we are doing currently involves over 4,500 children in over 350 teams from over 70 clubs, and growing season on season in Oxfordshire and neighbouring counties. We are passionate about football and the FA Respect agenda, both of which drive us to provide even more football, fun and enjoyment for our players, managers, parents and supporters and officials.
