Companies and organisations across Leicester-Shire and Rutland are invited to take part in our next Workplace Competition - 5-a-Side Football.

Run at GOALS Leicester, the three hour event will allow you to take on other workplaces for the chance to be crowned 5-a-Side Champion!

5-a-side soccer is an incredible game for developing and maintaining physical activity levels. The small sided version of the 'Beautiful Game' is a variation in which each team fields five players (four outfield players and a goalkeeper). Other differences from the full game include a smaller pitch, smaller goals and a reduced game duration.

Please ensure that all team members come in suitable clothing and footwear to play 5-a-side football on artificial pitches and that you bring plenty of drinks. Players must wear shin pads. Arrival is from 5.30 pm, with the competition starting promptly at 6.00 pm.

The competition will be delivered by qualified referees and GOALS professional staff, with an emphasis on fun. Rules will be sent prior to the event; however instruction and practice will be available on the day. The competition is suitable for all ages and abilities, and there must be one representative from each gender on the pitch at all times.

Bookings are made on a first come, first served basis.

Two teams are permitted per workplace - additional teams may be requested. This is to ensure that a variety of workplaces can take part.

Additional players: it is possible to bring up to 3 extra players on the night as substitutes (bringing your team to 8 players). Payment (additional £4.00 per additional player) and names will need to be provided on arrival.

Format: 5 players per team, mixed gender (at least 1 representative from each gender must always be on the pitch). Maximum of 12 teams.

Cost: £20.00 per team of 5 (£4.00 per person).
