Welcome to The International Gay & Lesbian Football Association

The International Gay & Lesbian Football Association (IGLFA) was founded in 1992 in order to help promote and foster the growth of LGTBQ football world wide. Since IGLFA’s creation, more than 100 teams/clubs representing over 30 countries have joined and participated at IGLFA competitions. Each of these teams/clubs have played a vital role in helping IGLFA accomplish its goals and uphold its mission.

In recent years the IGLFA has shifted its focus from organizing an annual IGLFA World Championship, to one which provides assistance to organizing boards of national and international tournaments and events.


The Western North America IGLFA 25th Anniversary Event

The Western North America IGLFA 25th Anniversary event was held at the Sin City Soccer Shootout in Las Vegas, Nevada last night, January 14th, 2017. The Sin City Soccer Shootout is held annually and is an IGLFA sanctioned event. Topic of discussion: LGBT soccer and homophobia. The event was a great success, originally planned to have the discussion last 15-20 minutes ... it lasted 1.5 hours, showing that there is a real need in our community to address these issues together.
