2013–14 BVIFA National Football League

The BVIFA National Football League is the highest competitive football league in the British Virgin Islands. The league was founded in 2009 after the merger between the Tortola League and the Virgin Gorda League.

In 2012 the league decided to split the teams into two groups, based on the position they finished in the standings at the end of the 2011-12 season.[1]

The majority of matches in the league are held at the national stadium, the A.O. Shirley Recreation Ground, based in Road Town, Tortola. Matches are also held on the island of Virgin Gorda.

Domestic Cup Competitions[edit]

There are two domestic cup competitions played prior to the start of the league season, which were both founded in 2010. They are the Terry Evans Knockout Cup, which is named after the former BVIFA President and one of the forefathers of football in the British Virgin Islands.[3]

And the Wendol Williams Cup (also known as the Caribbean Cellars Wendol Williams Cup), which is played in memory of former BVIFA executive member Wendol Williams, who died aged 39 on 6 June 2010 on his way to the FIFA congress in South Africa ahead of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.[4]
