The Scottish Junior Football Association ("SJFA" for short) is an affiliated national association of he Scottish Football Association and is the governing body for the Junior grade of football in Scotland. The term "Junior" refers to the level of football played.
The closest equivalent terminology would be Non-League football in England, the difference being that non-league football in Scotland is not similarly integrated in the Scottish football league system. Founded in 1886, the SJFA is responsible for disciplinary matters within the grade, certain player registration procedures and organising the annual Scottish Junior Cup. Other league and cup competitions are organised by three regional committees. The association headquarters are at
Hampden Park, Glasgow, which is Scotland's national stadium.
There was an earlier Scottish Junior FA which was founded in Glasgow in October 1880. This body also ran a Scottish Junior Cup competition during 1880-81 season, but appears to have disbanded at the end of that season.
