Welcome to the Scottish Welfare FA official website


The Scottish Welfare Football Association (SWFA) is an affiliated association of the Scottish Football Association. It was formed at the end of the First World War to boost morale among factory workers. Historically, over 500 clubs competed in Welfare competitions; however, this has dwindled over the years to fewer than 200 currently and we’re presently looking to expand this once more.

The association oversees competitions mainly operating Sunday and summer or midweek football, predominantly in the North of Scotland.

2018 sees the SWFA celebrate its centenary year.
