Inaugural SLFA 1904-05 season

Dec. 3, 2021 |  Categories:  SLFA   St. Louis  

The St. Louis Football Association was launched for the 1904-05 season as a rival professional league to the more established Association Football League of St. Louis. Four clubs made up the league: Cornets; Leacocks; Rawlings; and Sportsmans. The league played doubleheaders each Sunday at Sportsman's Park.

After eight weeks, the league had a month's worth of postponed matches due to cold weather and bad condition of the grounds starting early January. The league managed one more doubleheader in late February before disbanding in early March.
