The Gibraltar Football Association (GFA) and the Gibraltar Football League Association (GFLA) are pleased to announce a major restructuring of the domestic men’s senior league for Season 2019/20.


The restructure is the culmination of extensive work carried out jointly between both organizations over the past year. The changes reflect a common aim of the GFA and the GFLA in maximizing playing opportunities for young Gibraltarian footballers in our domestic competitions and are designed to create the conditions in which clubs are encouraged to operate within their means and focus more on local talent.

The three broad principles underpinning the new structure are:

  • Promoting the usage of greater numbers of Home Grown Players (HGPs) for more minutes on the field of play.
  • Ensuring the long-term stability and sustainability of the Gibraltar National League and its constituent clubs.
  • Developing the Gibraltar National League product and its constituent clubs as successful brands.

Sixteen clubs will participate in the new Gibraltar National League. The Intermediate League is retained as a separate U23 development league with ten teams participating, as follows:
