More features | low match fees | less admin
5aside.com™ provides teams with a premium 5 a side football service. As well as getting the essentials right with quality pitches, refs & balls, we offer more features than other leagues (see below). We also keep match fees and admin to the bare minimum.
More than just a game
Whether its post-match drinks (and comparing stats!) with your team, regular football, or an excuse to meet up with mates, we understand that 5 a side is more than just a game to the 1.6 million of us that play every week.
The ultimate 5 a side experience
Check out the video of our Marylebone 5a side league to get an idea of what to expect:
Stats recorded live
Every appearance, goal, MOM and assist is recorded by the ref and published in real-time online, so you can compare your stats after the match!
5aside.com™ is the only UK league operator to record assists. So finally the under-appreciated creative player gets recognition!
OPTA style player stats
Goals ✓ Assists ✓ MOMs ✓ Caps ✓ Assists-to-game ratio ✓ Goals-to-game ratio ✓
players rankings | hall of fame
Compare your stats with other top performers on the league rankings page (like this one) or for the ultimate honour, you could make it into the all time hall of fame.
The end of season award ceremony
Our epic ceremonies involve the dedicated league manager presenting the champions with a huge trophy, bottle of fizz and their individual medals. All this while the Champions League anthem is played, which always adds to the vibe. (especially when the champs insist on spraying the fizz at everyone while their league manager tries to grab a shot for the ‘gram!) The 2nd placed team also get individual medals and together with the champs, get inducted into the hall of fame on their league table page (like this one) for posterity.
We also RECOGNISE the top players
The top performing five aside players are also presented with trophies including: ‘Player of the season’ (MOMs) ✓ ‘Golden boot’ (goals) ✓ ‘Most creative’ (assists) ✓ – These players also get inducted into their league’s hall of fame.
FA affiliated london football league
We are affiliated by the London FA, so you can rest assured that we keep best practices for safety, quality and consistency.
Dedicated interested referees
Tired of uninterested and unprofessional refs? Each 5aside.com™ league has a dedicated FA trained and accredited referee. Our refs get to know the players and understand how to keep 5aside football safe and fun.
Fix up look sharp
You’ve got the players, you’ve agreed on the obligatory funny team name, now look the part! All new teams get free team kits to start the new season! Just choose a colour and ping us your team emblem – We will do the rest (if your team doesn’t have a logo, we can professionally design one for you too).
Five-a-side pitch scoreboard is on the halfway line so you can keep an eye on the score – No more having to ask the ref the score!
Useful for substitutions, changing keeper and game management – Having the score and timer on display can really add to the drama as the game enters the last few minutes.
As a provider of evening leagues in London, all our venues are floodlit and nearly all are 3G or 4G pitches. You can see exactly which leagues have a 3G, 4G or Astro pitch on the venue page.
Balls for ballers
Our balls are designed with the 5aside footballer in mind with a soft outer for finesse touch and hexagon structure for sweet passing and shooting (see image above).
Great locations and FACILITIES
Our 5 aside venues are easily accessible with decent public transport links (see ‘league finder’ below) and typically have showers and changing rooms on site.
