The Social Inclusion Football League (SIFL):
The SIFL provides competitive football for individuals and community group / organisations throughout the North West and further afield. The SIFL is currently celebrating its 10th year and has, over the years, supported teams from the likes of Lancashire Mind, Derby County Community Trust, Nightsafe, Thomas Project, Kemple View (Priory Care), Bolton Wanderers Community Trust, Alternative Futures Group and CSI within its Premier League and Championship divisions.
More recently, the SIFL has launched its Academy League which provides competitive football for those with additional learning and physical needs.
