British Deaf Football League
Deaf Football in Great Britain has a very proud and strong history, dating back to 1871, a history that is virtually unknown to the majority of the followers of football in Britain. Deaf Football clubs have been around longer than the majority of all the teams in the English and Scottish Football League pyramid. Great Britain boasts the oldest deaf football club in the world in Glasgow Deaf Athletic Football Club, founded in 1871. Glasgow Deaf Athletic Football Club is one of the oldest clubs in the world, set up only eleven years after Sheffield FC — known to be the first football club in the world. Glasgow Deaf Athletic Football Club was established before famous clubs such as Rangers FC (1873), Celtic (1881) and Manchester United (1878).
