What is 5-a-side football?

Five-a-side football is a version of minifootball, in which each team fields five players (four outfield players and a goalkeeper). Other differences from association football include a smaller pitch, smaller goals, and a reduced game duration.

Five-a-side football is a popular form of football for adults, and is often played in an indoor or artificial turf setting. It is a fast-paced and exciting game that is perfect for players of all skill levels.

Once you have joined a league, you will be assigned a fixture list and will play matches against other teams in your league. The matches are usually played on a weekly basis, and the season typically runs from September to April.

The winner of the league is the team that has accumulated the most points at the end of the season. Points are awarded for winning, drawing, and losing matches.
