History of the Houston Football Association
Created in 1978, HFA is a soccer powerhouse in Texas. HFA is a member of the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) and is affiliated with the United States Soccer Federation. HFA is a non-profit organization and currently employing one full-time staff Administrator and one full-time Referee Assignor to assist the membership and to administer the league on a professional basis.

The season kicks off early / mid-September and runs through the end of April or May with a break during the holiday seasons. Traditionally, HFA’s Memorial Cup / Shield Cup runs through the course of the season with the Final being played the first weekend of June. All registered HFA teams are eligible to participate in the Memorial Cup / Shield, a single- elimination competition.

HFA Regular League boasts nine open competitive divisions with 10 teams in each division. HFA is also home to a growing Over 30 League with three divisions, as well as our most recent addition in the form of an Over 40 League.

The Premier division competes on Saturday and Sunday evenings at Bayland Park. This division promotes the highly skilled player at the professional, national and local levels. This division also prepares Under 19 players for their collegiate career. Games are designed to promote high level competition and sportsmanship while also serving as extremely competitive exposure for the youth players of tomorrow. Some of our players have progressed to play in the Major League Soccer (MLS) as well as earning scholarships to colleges across the country. Premier is also the home to many former MLS players as they continue their post-professional soccer careers. Premier games are free to the public and are well attended.

All other regular league divisions play at Bear Creek Park, located at 3535 War Memorial Drive, between Hwy 6 and Eldridge.

The Championship and first divisions are very competitive and teams aspire to join the Premier division. The second divisions also maintain a fast pace and competitive standard. Third divisions and Fourth are somewhat more recreational, but this only designates players with a wide range of skills who are unable to dedicate a lot of time to their game because of professional and personal responsibilities.

Our growing O30 League currently has a total of 28 teams playing in 3 divisions on Thursday evenings. This league is for the more mature player who aren't interested in chasing around the likes of players almost half their age! The O30 Premier and 1st division are of a very high standard and are very competitive. the O30 2nd division is a somewhat slower pace and less competitive. The O30 league play their games on Thursday evenings at Cullen Park located at 19008 Saums Road; at Houston Sports Park (HSP) located at 12131 Kirby Drive; as well as Bayland Park.

HFA's most recent addition is the O40 league, this is for players who are 40 years of age or older. Currently we have 12 teams competing in 1 division. All things considered, our O40 matches are still very competitive matches considering the advanced average age of our participants! The O40 league play all their games at Houston Sports Park (HSP) located at 12131 Kirby Drive.

HFA hosts an Annual Soccer Tournament at Bear Creek Park in late March/early April, which is aimed at providing challenging competition from across Texas and the Southwest.

HFA enjoys a close relationship with the various soccer organizations in Houston. Many of its players coach or train youth teams professionally, and youth players traditionally advance to HFA teams when their youth careers are completed. Players under the age of 18 are welcome to register with an HFA team so long as their legal guardian signs an Underage Participation Waiver. Please note that HFA will not allow anyone younger than 16 to register for a team.
