Football Club (Mens)

Established in 1878, Edinburgh University AFC is the third-oldest senior club in the East of Scotland and has been a member of the Scottish Football Association since its establishment.


Our club consists of six teams which are divided into our performance (1st XI – 4th XI) and recreational (5th XI – 6th XI) teams. If you would like to join the club, keep a look out on our socials for the sign-up form for our September trials during Welcome Week!

Please only purchase a membership if you have been to trials and have had confirmation from someone at the club that you have made it into a team.

Performance Teams

Our First team competes in the Scottish Lowland Football League on a Saturday, a semi-professional league which is part of the fifth tier of Scottish Football. On a Wednesday, they play in Scottish BUCS 1A against the best footballing universities in Scotland.

Our other three performance teams also compete at a high level. Our U20s (3rd XI) compete in the Lowland Development League, acting as a feeder team to our 1st XI. Our second and fourth teams play at different levels of LEAFA amateur leagues (Lothian and Edinburgh Amateur Football Association) on a Saturday. All three of these squads compete in BUCS on a Wednesday against various universities around Scotland.

Our performance squads train twice a week at Peffermill playing fields, and most weeks will have two fixtures. EUAFC provides an opportunity for students to compete in a performance environment at different levels. As such, a high level of commitment is expected in return for a fantastic playing experience.


Recreational Teams

Our two recreational teams (5th XI and 6th XI) have a more social feel and are there to give people an opportunity to represent the university without the commitment of playing for a performance squad. Our recreational teams play on a Wednesday in BUCS, and as part of the university intramural league on a Saturday.
