With 56 clubs involved and a brand new website underway, now is the time to join the Barnet Sunday League

Sunday League football was in danger of dying out a few years ago, especially with some leagues in the capital folding - it was a concerning time for amateur football in north London.

However, one league that has weathered the storm and seen something of a renaissance in recent seasons is the Barnet Sunday League, who have received more applications than ever before for the 2019/20 season.

Boasting 56 clubs and a very active social media presence, the four division league hopes to add a fifth division with the amount of applications that they have received this season.

With a brand new website on the way, combined with a digital overhaul of the clubs administration processes, the management committee are very positive about the long term future of grass roots football in Barnet.
