The midnight league is a football league with a two fold goal to target children from more deprived areas to engage in football.
Through organising the football matches in the evening the children are also off the streets, contributing to the second aim of the project. To guarantee that children are not confronted with crime, violence and the possibility of ending up at youth gangs/ crime groups. Scottish FA coaches run the sessions at local sports centres and other venues, usually on Friday and Saturday evenings, with teams competing in weekly leagues.
Young teenagers age 12-16.
The midnight league started in 2003. Particpating in the midnight league has positive lifestyle impact (greater selfconfidence),
leads to reduction in anti-social behaviour.
Cooperation with Scottish FA and the bank of scotland.
