The Colleges Football Association of Ireland is a full affiliate of the Football Association of Ireland. The CFAI organise football on behalf of the FAI in third level colleges in the island of Ireland.
An executive committee is elected annually at an AGM to organise and manage the competitions and the development of football during each year.
There are sub-committees chaired by an officer of the executive which handle the day to day business of the association. The association encourages non executive members and students to get involved in these sub-committees.
The main activities of the Association are:
- Liasing with the CUFL committee and international subcommittee with regard to the running of the Colleges and Universities Football League and Colleges & Universities International team
- Organising the 5 CFAI Cup competitions (Umbro Colleges Cup and Plate, Bob Eustace Cup, Bob Eustace Shield and B-Teams Cup).
- Organising a representative squad
