We provide all the equipment, from match balls and bibs to FA qualified referees. All you need to do is turn up for your fixture each week. 

Shin Pads are NOT compulsory but advised. All pitches can range in turf type so please email in to find out what footwear is appropriate.

How many players are needed for a league game?

There must not be more than five players on the pitch for each side (six players per team for 6-a-side and so on).

A game can officially be played with only 4 players on the pitch for one team and the referee may ref and play at the same time.

How do we know when we will be playing?

You're able to view all of our fixtures for the season online and will be updated each week to show results VIEW HERE

Why is a deposit needed to be paid?

A deposit is needed to ensure teams turn up each week to play as no-shows mean a wasted journey and no football for the opposition

This system is in place to reduce absences to an absolute minimum and ensure the league runs smoothly.

How many forfeits are accepted?

1 forfeit renders your deposit void if 24 hours notice isnt provided. If notice is provided your deposit will remain in tact but a 2nd forfeit no matter what the notice will render your deposit void. If a team forfeits 2 games in the league no matter the notice they may be removed from the league.

How much notice is needed to be given for a forfeit?

We allow a minimum of 24 hours for notice to be given.

The wrong person has been put down as a scorer this week?

If there are any issues with the details for your league results do not hesititate to email in to info@playfiveaside.com and we will amend this as quickly as possible.

How long do results take to be put online?

We always aim to have results online within 24 hours
