When it comes to fees and charges, as a community football club, AFC Leyton is very different.  We offer payment plans and various ways to pay to make it easier to cover the costs of playing.  If you are a single parent or  low-income family on free school meals, please let us know as discounts and bursaries are available. See below for more information

Technical Skills / Fun Sessions

For those that don’t want to join and team and just want to play or are just starting out in football, we have the pay and play option.
– Leyton Active is free to attend for those who play midweek (development & league)
– Leyton Active (Mini’s & Wildcats) £0 per month
– Leyton Active (Juniors & wildcats) £16 per month
– Leyton Active (Adults & Justplay) £20 per month

League Pre-season Training

At the end of the season, those intending to stay with us move to a pre-season training fee of £20 per month between June and August.  This includes midweek training and also the Leyton Active sessions – 2 sessions a week.

Development Players

Intermediate players who are aspiring to be league players train with us for £20 per month.  This includes midweek training and also the Leyton Active sessions – 2 sessions a week.

League Players

League players are technically able and experienced players.  Parents are asked to sign a membership agreement with the club that lasts for the season and is £280. This sets out the expectations and commitment needed from both the parent and the player for the whole of the playing season.   This can be paid in 9 monthly installments or in full. This includes midweek training, league matches, special cup games plus goalkeeper training and Leyton Active technical sessions.


These are charged on a tournament by tournament basis and costs are split per team for domestic tours.  For international tours, these are priced per person.

Discounts and Bursaries


If you are fortunate enough to have more than one female player in your family, we offer a 25% discount to siblings.

Single parent discounts and Looked After Children

All single parents and Looked After Children can also apply for a 25% discount.

Bursary Places

AFC Leyton bursaries were created to give players opportunities to play that otherwise may not afford to.  If you are a low-income family and do not play football at another club, you may be able to claim up to 100% free bursary to play.

Bursaries are limited to 1 player per team and 10 players across our Leyton Active Sessions (5 in each age group).

To apply for a bursary, proof of entitlement needs to be provided in the form of the following and must be emailed to

• Income Support
• Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
• Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
• Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
• The guaranteed element of Pension Credit
• Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
• Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
• Universal Credit -with your household income less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)

If your financial status changes or  if you sign to another fee paying club, you must inform AFC Leyton as your bursary will be affected.

We operate this policy to ensure that as many children as possible have the opportunity to play football at club level.  Where a bursary has been reallocated to another player, fees will become chargeable at the correct rate.
