The Herefordshire Football Association, simply known as the Herefordshire FA or HFA, is the governing body of football in the county of Herefordshire. It runs several league and cup competitions in the county.

Administration[edit]

The Herefordshire FA consists of two key bodies.

The Council; comprising 17 elected representatives from the Leagues within the county plus 11 Life Members. The Council meets 4 times per year to consider policy issues and direction, as well as to approve proposals put forward by the various committees.

The Board; was established in 1998 to make the decision-making process more streamlined, is responsible for major business, strategic and commercial decisions. The Board comprises six elected representatives from the Council, plus the HFA Chief Executive and Company Secretary.[1]

The Herefordshire FA are committed to developing and administering the game at all levels within the county. In line with The Football Association's Whole Sport Plan, the County FA has produced a four-year plan aimed at providing everyone with the opportunity to participate in football for life.

They are keen to develop partnerships to promote the benefits of football and improve the facilitieis where football is played. Working with key partners we hope to access essential funding which can be invested to increase the quantity and quality of pitches and facilities providing more and better playing opportunities.[2]
