We are excited to announce that we have put together FREE 5-a-side football league as part of your Residence Life offer! We will provide you with team kit and a free football to make sure that you play in style!
All fixtures take part at Goodwin Sports Centre (The University of Sheffield) on Wednesdays. League fixtures begin on Wednesday 9th November. Between now and then we will open up our 5-a-side football area up on Wednesdays between 12 - 5pm just for you guys to come and use it as a kick about session and get used to your surroundings. There will be no student leaders leading the session so just bring some mates and have a game free of charge.
The league slots are given on a first-come first-served basis. Each league will consist of 6 teams and you will play each team 3 times over the course of the season (leagues run parallel to the academic year). That's 15 games of free football. Games are 60 minutes long and you are entitled to bring between 5 and 10 players to each fixture and use a roll-on-roll-off substitution system.
Please note that this is a weekly league and will require commitment to the fixtures.
How do I register?
All you need to do is fill out this Google Form with your details. As you will see it asks you to pick a time slot to play your games, all games will be played at the same desired time slot each week. Please make sure that you check your email address on a regular basis as we send you any updates or cancelations via email.
I have registered, what next?
You will be sent a confirmation email in the next week to confirm whether or not you have been successful with your choice of league. If you are not successful we will try our best to give you more options. You will also receive a copy of the small sided football rules that we adhere to.
We also have our own football league administration programme. This will give you the chance to check your league table, fixtures and goals scored.
What happens when the season ends?
At the end of the season we have a big knock-out tournament that all teams can enter. We take all the top 3 teams from each league and put them into an FA Cup style knockout competition- the Champions League. Then we take the bottom 3 teams from each league and put them into a knockout competition - The Plate League. Medals, picture on the hall of fame and a famous yellow winners t-shirt are awarded to the winners.
Please note that the league is affilliated with our local County FA, therefore this is a male only league.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
