Our competition comprises of foundation football clubs with over 50 years history. Clubs join us from across the region, including; Guyra, Glen Innes, Inverell, Walcha, Uralla, and numerous Armidale-based clubs.
We are focused on providing an accessible competition to all, that builds upon the success of regional Football and community spirit.
The SUFL competition hosts players from five years old, up to senior 1st-grade division, with many teams boasting generations of players.
