The British Field Target Association was formed in the mid 1980′s, initially to standardise the rules of Field Target throughout Great Britain. Northern Island was not included as the firearms regulations were different from the mainland.
The founding members of the BFTA were six English Regions and the National bodies of Scotland and Wales.

The BFTA was, with the United States and Norway, one of the founding Members of the World Field Target Federation in the early 1990′s.
