Waterford Floodlit Soccer League was formed in August 2002 following the collapse of Nightowls International Leagues PLC. It quickly filled the void and steadily grew in size and popularity. Nightowls was originally set up for retired and older players but in its new format, the FSL developed to cater for all ages, grades and abilities by providing a competitive game of eleven a side football, Monday to Friday, all year round on astro turf pitches.

Now renamed Waterford Floodlit Soccer, we remain locally based and owned and our continued success can be attributed to many factors. but simplicity is the key. Anyone can enter a team with no need for committees, grounds or other complications.

Waterford Floodlit Soccer (W.F.S.) now run 7 and 11 a side leagues and touranments all year round. W.F.S. is unique in the fact that we are self regulated and do not have an affiliation to UEFA, FIFA or any other governing body. This means that our league is free to quickly adjust rules and regulations to suit demands.
