    The Association of Football Statisticians was founded in 1979 by a group of mainly UK-based football historians and statisticians.

    Much of the pioneering work on recording the history of football has been completed under the AFS banner and most club statisticians are members.

    11v11.com is our community site.

    - AFS has provided football statistics and information for most national newspapers and broadcasters in the United Kingdom and many internationally.

    Law firms - We prepare detailed and authoritative data-based reports for football-related cases including insurance claims.

    Academia - Increasingly football information and data is analysed in its own right, but also as a model for economic performance in all sectors of the economy. We provide data sets for academic use to universities and colleges around the world.
