Five-a-side football

Post Covid-19 Update

Due to the impact of Covid-19 the University Staff Football Club lunchtime 5-a-side games are currently suspended until further notice.

Eleven-a-side Football

In the absence of 5-a-side football, we are organising weekly eleven-a-side games which are taking place at the Coombe Dingle Sports Centre on Thursdays between 5.30pm and 7pm.

We have ensured that our games are compliant with FA and government guidance on grassroots football.

We are a mixed group and our games are played in a friendly and competitive manner.

Game Selection

The organiser of each game sends an email to the mailing list the week before each game asking for interested players to sign-up. If demand exceeds the number of player spaces available, players outside the game line-up will be listed as a reserve and called upon in the event of withdrawals.

Where

Games are played at the Coombe Dingle Sports Complex.

Cost

Games cost no more than £3 per player which can be paid electronically.
