It’s that time of year for the new 2021/ 2 Football season and the anticipation of the new kit design. Although a year in delay due to COVID, YBS are very pleased to have partnered with the NHS Yorkshire Ambulance Service – Football Team in providing sponsorship for a new Football Kit in the The Emergency Services Football League.

The ESFL strives to improve the health and wellbeing of those individuals serving in the UK’s emergency services. It is well documented that these professions, although rewarding, carry the burden of being highly stressful with significant risks associated with their undertaking.

The ESFL aims to alleviate the burden of such stress and provide a valuable outlet for those members wishing to play football. The league will comprise of representatives from the NHS, Police Forces, Fire Services and Prison Service within the United Kingdom – all of which are well known for having highly competitive sides.

We hope to provide competitive and regular football fixtures for those who find themselves unable to commit to the regular affiliation leagues due to the often unsociable working patterns that these roles involve.

The league will have an element of flexibility within its format to ensure that teams can feasibly fulfil their fixture commitments through the season.
