Competitions

The Aberystwyth Digs Football League is based within the University, and enjoys full subscription year on year.  The league is run voluntarily by the Digs Committee, whose members are elected each season.

All clubs have to go through the team registration process, whereby all players have to purchase Tim Aber Insurance from the Students Union website.  Teams are assigned into one of two divisions where they will challenge for as high a league finish as possible.  Following the completion of league fixtures, teams will be entered into one of five End-of-Season Play-offs to complete for silverware.  In addition to these competitions, all teams are entered into the Aberystwyth Town Cup.  The cup runs alongside the league and the finalists can look forward to playing at Park Avenue, the home of Aberystwyth Town Football Club, to show off their skills in front a stadium crowd.

Our clubs make Digs, and we are proud of the 16 existing clubs who each have their own piece of history.  Once a player joins a club, they can enjoy the full Digs League experience.  Clubs manage their own training, friendlies and social evenings, which are a massive part of Digs.  We encourage all players who wish to get involved to contact us via our Facebook Page.
