Fife AC is a charity registered in Scotland, No. SC045642.
Fife AC was formed in the early 70's from the amalgamation of several clubs in North East Fife. In the mid 80s Fife Southern Harriers dissolved and were integrated into the current Fife AC. Geographically, it is a widespread club taking in Central and North East Fife, with training groups in Kirkcaldy, Glenrothes, Cupar and St Andrews.
