The Aberystwyth Digs Football League is based within Aberystwyth University, and continues to grow each year with more teams wanting to be involved. The League is run voluntarily by the Digs Committee who is elected at the end of the previous season by the Students' Union.
For the 2016/17 season Scott Wilson and Josh Price will act as Co-Presidents, with Josh Owen-Jones and Huw Marfell as Digs Officers. Jed Woodcock and Rhun Dafydd will also be lending their experience to help out the committee during the season.
Teams are randomly assigned into between two and four simultaneously running leagues. After all fixtures in the leagues are fulfilled, teams compete in one of the five end of season play-offs, with qualification tiered based upon final league positions.
In addition to the leagues, all teams are entered into the Aberystwyth Town Cup. The cup runs alongside the leagues and the finalists can look forward to playing at Park Avenue, the home of Aberystwyth Town Football Club. Teams eliminated in the first two rounds of this competition are entered into the Consolation Shield.
Each player must have a valid Club Sporty Membership from the Sports Centre - they cannot take part until they have one. Membership status is checked regularly by the Digs Officers, Students' Union and the Sports Centre! Players must also be properly registered by a Team Manager in order to be eligible to play.
