Bangladesh Football Association (BFA) was set up in 1996 and is the co-ordinating body for grassroots football in Tower Hamlets.
It is an umbrella organisation and represents 42 football teams from Tower Hamlets and neighbouring boroughs. BFA organises football leagues and tournaments for the local community at local, regional and national level. It supports member teams with capacity building to enable them to develop and provide better services to their users.
WWMT has donated £4500 to help the formation of a new youth league in Tower Hamlets.
The new league will be called ‘Tower Hamlets Youth League’ and will encompass U10’s, U12’s U14’s, U16’s and U18’s age groups. They aim to attract 10 teams in each of the age groups and the matches will be played every Saturday.
