Sussex County Football Association
The Sussex County Football Association, also simply known as Sussex County FA or Sussex FA, is the governing body of football in the county of Sussex, England. The Sussex County FA was founded in September 1882 and run a number of County Cup competitions at various levels for teams all across the county.
Founded in September 1882, the Sussex County FA was founded by several football clubs including Burgess Hill, Chichester City and Horsham. The 1882/83 season saw the Sussex FA create the Sussex Senior Cup, which was won for the first time by Brighton Rangers. Whilst the main aim of county football associations was to ensure clubs had lots of matches to play, a secondary aim was to help organise the recreation of schoolchildren. The Sussex County FA was formed at the time when parents in Sussex were pressing local schools to introduce games on Saturdays, with the intention of keeping children out of mischief.
The Sussex County League is the highest level league in Sussex with the Division One winners being promoted to the Isthmian League or the Southern League. Although there are three divisions in the county league, there are four feeder leagues; East Sussex, West Sussex, Mid Sussex and Brighton Worthing & District.
In addition there are also Sunday leagues and Youth leagues.
