Developing and nurturing football among youth in the UK and Sri Lanka

Histroy And Objectives

The Sri Lankan Football Organisation UK (SLFO) is a not for profit organisation which was born after several of its members felt that there was a need to foster the development of football both here and in Sri Lanka. The members themselves are passionate about football and many are experienced in players and wanted to see football become as popular among the Sri Lankan community as cricket is.

SLFO’s aims are:

  • Develop and nurturing football among youth in rural or deprived areas of Sri Lanka.
  • To establish goodwill relationships between the Sri Lankan Football Association in the UK and the governing body in Sri Lanka and the UK.
  • To promote the welfare of football enthusiasts of Sri Lankan origin in the UK and to hold a junior and senior Seven-a-side Football Tournament in the summer.
  • To support charitable activities related to football either in the Sri Lanka or the UK

The members also believe that there is a need to bring together Sri Lankan football fans of every community/background and to building bridges between all the groups who share in love of the beautiful game.

This new organisation cordially welcomes all Sri Lankan football enthusiasts, Old Boy Associations, Sri Lankan schools in the UK, and the children of any Sri Lankan origins in the UK to join in this new venture!
