Welcome to the Laguna Niguel Football Association (LNFA) Fall 2017 Season which runs from July through December. We cultivate a recreationally competitive environment where our players and teams can express their love for the beautiful game. We host three divisions; 11v11 Sunday, 7v7 Wednesday and Coed Friday which are founded on Compassion, Discipline and Family. Our association is affiliated with Cal South, USASA, USSF and FIFA. We have been providing quality football since 1996.
Like our players, teams and our game which evolve over time the LNFA drives continuous improvements leveraging our experience and technology to implement simple and effective policies. You can view our policies through our Information menu. Our success is founded on the long term relationships we cultivate with our players and teams which enjoy football with us over many years. We host two seasons annually which are approximately 16 to 20 matches in length. The Spring Season runs from January through June and hosts league seasons and a cup, mug or playoff competition. The Fall Season runs from July through December and hosts our summer programs as well as league seasons.
