Inverness and District Football Association is saved and the 2022 season will continue with 28 teams

The Inverness and District Football Association (IDFA) have been rescued and will kick off their summer season next month.

Avoch and Loch Ness return this season.

The IDFA was in danger of folding after failing to name five positions on its committee to allow the season to continue.

However, the positions have been filled and the season can take place as planned.

It has been confirmed that 28 teams will participate in three divisions of the IDFA, which will include nine teams from the first division, nine teams from the first division and 10 teams from the second division.

Eight Ross-shire teams are taking part this season with Avoch, Black Rock Rovers, Contin and Maryburgh playing in the Premier League.

Black Isle United, Conon Bridge and Invergordon Social Club play in the Premier League.

Fortrose and Rosemarkie Union play in the Second Division.

Eight Ross-shire clubs met in Invergordon last week to discuss forming a Ross Amateur League.

But it was decided that it was not viable to do so this season.

Additionally, four cup competitions will be contested this summer, including the three Division Cups and the Association Cup, all of which are to be knockout formats.

The IDFA season is scheduled to start on Monday, April 11.

It has also been confirmed that 24 IDFA teams will take part in the Highland Amateur Cup, with the draw to be made later this month.

The competition is played with amateur teams from across the Highlands competing.

The 28 teams participating in the IDFA season are as follows.
