The Social Inclusion Football League (SIFL)

The SIFL provides competitive football for teams and individuals who use Services (Health & Social Care) or feel socially isolated.

The League is split in to two divisions and currently takes place once a month at the Blackburn Rovers Indoor Centre (BRIC).

We also provide a weekly Football session at the BRIC on Wednesdays between 11.30am and 12.30pm. This includes a Girls United session specifically set up for female players (16+).

Blokes United is specifically set up for isolated males players(16+) and runs two weekly sessions. Monday Evenings from 6pm at Darwen Academy and Thursday Evenings from 7pm at Witton Park Academy.
