Norfolk Combined Youth Football League (NCYFL) is thrilled to announce a transformative partnership, marking a pivotal milestone in the advancement of girls’ football in Norfolk and North Suffolk.

With our soon-to-be-revealed partner’s generous support, NCYFL is set to provide a Girls’ Provision, reinforcing our commitment to fostering inclusivity and equal opportunities in the sport. As part of this landmark collaboration, the partner organisation will hold the naming rights over the girls’ divisions, cup, and trophy competitions within the NCYFL, demonstrating their unwavering dedication to promoting the growth and visibility of girls’ football.

In tandem with this exciting development, and by the kindness of our new partner, we are pleased to announce that there will be a subsidy for league entry fees for girls’ teams participating in NCYFL’s Girls’ Provision. Development age groups (U7-U11) will see a reduced fee of £15, whilst U12-U18 teams will benefit from a reduced fee of £30, fostering greater accessibility and encouraging more girls to embrace the beautiful game. We believe in providing a platform for girls to showcase their talents on equal footing with mixed-gender teams, offering Cup Finals and Trophy Events at premier venues, ensuring an unparalleled experience for all participants.
