With over 1.5m adults playing Small Sided Football every week and with 30,000 teams playing in organised and competitive small sided leagues, this format of football has increasingly become an integral part of the football family.
The Leicestershire & Rutland County FA recognises the important role that Small Sided Football plays in encouraging people to continue playing football and enjoying all aspects of the 'Beautiful Game'.
Small Sided football is an all encompassing term that covers the following formats:
- Beach Soccer
Wherever you are around the country, the chances are that there is an opportunity to play Small Sided Football on your doorstep. This could come in all shapes and sizes from a large custom built Small Sided Football Facility with multiple pitches, to an indoor sports hall configured for Futsal, or even an 11-a-side pitch temporarily split into smaller pitches.
