HFA welcomes all men to join the best men’s soccer league in Houston. Currently, HFA has four leagues for various levels of competition: the Regular season, the Hotter Than Hell summer season, and two age-specific leagues in the O30s league and the U23 league.
For a player looking to join an existing team in any of those leagues, click here: New Player Request form. It takes you to an automated form, which will be distributed to all the team managers for their consideration. HFA does not assign players to teams, but rather relies on the team managers to add new players as they are needed on an individual team basis. Teams can continue signing new players until they have less than 5 games left on their schedule (2 games left for O30 / O40 league). Your information will be kept on file for 90 days.
Be sure to include which league you’re interested in joining on the Comments section.
If you want to bring a team into any of the three HFA leagues, fill out a team application within the application period. The league cannot guarantee space or division placement, and applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until all open slots are filled. The deadlines vary with the competitions, so check the application form for more information.
At least one member of the team management must have access to the internet and email in order to receive league correspondence and access the website Administration.

HFA Regular Season
The regular season fields 90 of the most competitive teams in 9 divisions with players from all over the globe. There are no age restrictions in the regular season.
The season starts in September and runs through April/May with breaks for the holidays. It also includes The Memorial Cup, an intra-league tournament which runs concurrently with the regular season. Teams play at least 18 regular season games and more depending on how far they advance in Memorial Cup action.
Premier division games are on Saturday and Sunday nights at Bayland Park. Championship plays most of their games at Bayland Park, but on Sundays at 9am and 11am. All other divisions play Sundays at 9am, 11am, 1pm and 3pm at Bear Creek Park.
Hotter Than Hell
HFA’s summer league, played on Sunday mornings at 9am and 11am. It’s a shorter, cheaper league for the avid soccer player who doesn’t mind sweating. HTH start date is dependent on when the Regular Season ends, but generally will begin in mid-May or early June.
The O30 men’s league play Thursday nights at 7 pm and 8:45 pm at Cullen Park and 7:30 pm and 9:15 pm at the Houston Amateur Sports Park located at Beltway 8 and Hwy 288.
Depending on the number of team applications, there are two or three divisions with a maximum of 10 games per season (Fall, Winter, Summer). Players must be 30 years of age at the time of registration to play.
Already play in the Regular Season? No problem! Since these are two different leagues you are allowed to play on both.

The U23 league is summer-only play, intended for guys who are going off to play college ball, or coming home for the summer. It's a great way for the high school or college player to stay in shape during their off season. Games are played Saturday or Sunday night at the HASP complex. The season starts in mid-May or early June and finishes before players report to their college coaches.
