Achaea Football Clubs Association (Greek: Ένωση Ποδοσφαιρικών Σωματείων Αχαΐας) is one of the oldest Greek amateur football clubs associations, representing teams from the Greek regional unit of Achaea.

History[edit]

It was founded in 1927 in Patras. Members included teams from the prefectures of Aetolia-Acarnania, Elis, Kefalonia and Zakynthos. Aetolia-Acarnania established its own association in 1969, Elis and Zakynthos in 1971, and in 1975 Kefalonia (as Kefalonia and Ithaca Football Clubs Association). Founding members of the association were the teams:

Organization[edit]

The association is a member of the Hellenic Football Federation and organizes a regional football league and cup. It currently represents 700 football players and 156 amateur men's football clubs (126 of which are active).

Six of these football clubs are playing in national leagues. The only women's football club of Achaia F.C.A. is playing in the first national league.

The football clubs are separated in four leagues:

  • Achaia F.C.A. A League (16 clubs)
  • Achaia F.C.A. A1 League (18 clubs)
  • Achaia F.C.A. B League (41 clubs in three divisions)
  • Achaia F.C.A. C league (24 clubs in three divisions)

International participation[edit]

Achaia F.C.A. eliminated the collective teams of other amateur Greek leagues in 2005, thus representing Greece in the UEFA Regions' Cup[1] in Budapest (UEFA's top amateur competition where only one team composed of players from one amateur domestic league can qualify).
