Join the English Defence League
– through a genuine EDL Facebook page

There are genuine EDL pages on Facebook.
And there are fake pages – counterfeit pages.

The list below contains official EDL divisions on Facebook so you can contact the division closest to you.

If your division is not listed below you can contact us directly here and we will forward your request to your organiser, or you can join our Forum and chat with members and supporters from your region and overseas.

Our website is englishdefenceleague.org.uk.
Our old website, englishdefenceleague.org, has been stolen.

The following list shows the genuine EDL page for your area.

We need your help to keep the list up-to-date, so send your questions and additions by messaging us through our Twitter account: https://twitter.com/EDLofficialpage

Why are counterfeit EDL pages set up?
The continued support for the EDL really upsets UaF, Antifa and other Trotskyites (more than it upsets most Muslims). They set up fake pages to confuse enquirers, to deter new members and to waste the time of patriots. Some bogus pages are set up by vandals – who need to get a life. The fake pages are deliberately weak and attempt to depict us as weak and lacking focus.

How to pick a fake page
Most forgeries look OK on the surface.
The only sure way is to check through this list.
