There are nearly 30,000 small sided teams playing across the country. This significant figure is continuing to grow and expand at a rapid rate and it is anticipated that the number of small sided football teams will overtake the number of adult male 11 v 11 teams.
Small-sided football is another way which you can play the game with various small-sided providers offering this format around the County. The small-sided game has encouraged those who might no longer play the traditional 11v11 format to re-engage with the sport through a more flexible offer.
Small-sided football encompasses the following formats;
4 v 4
5 v 5
6 v 6
7 v 7
There are a whole host of small-sided football providers around the County so please be advised to check whether the provider has been appropriately affiliated to The FA before taking part.
Powerplay are an organisation who we fully support in Cheshire which currently have leagues in the following areas;
(Malpas, Northwich, Wirral, Nantwich, Middlewich, Holmes Chapel, Altrincham, Wilmslow, Cheadle Hulme)
The Laws of Small Sided Football have been revised for the benefit to players and referees. The FA encourages all Small Sided Football centres to adopt these uniform Laws.
