FOOTBALL DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE
Come Play with Us
The FDL League is a London, UK based youth football tournament for professional, academy, grassroots and community teams.
Our competitions provide opportunities for players to hone their talent, improve their play and be rewarded for their successes multiple times throughout the season. We have two winter tournaments and two summer tournaments.
The FDL Tournament runs in October, February, May and July. This Champions League style competition consists of a mixture of league fixtures and a knockout competition.
Each team plays group stage games, meeting teams in their group. The winning team and the runners-up from each group then progress to the knockout stage.
The knockout stage draw is completely random and the ties are played in a one-legged format all the way to the final. If the two teams are tied during any knockout stage, the winning team is decided by a penalty shootout.
The champions are awarded with the prestigious FDL League trophy.
