Villarreal take on Sparta Prague

Small sided - 5 & 6-a-side leagues

There are nearly 30,000 small sided teams playing across the country. 

Small sided football is identified in the National Game Strategy as one of The FA’s key growth targets for adult football. The popularity of this format of football is a reaction to changing work and leisure patterns and a move towards ‘pay and play’ football.

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.

With over four million footballers now playing Small Sided Football, there is always a need for more referees. The FA has introduced a referee’s course specifically for the sport and further details on this can be obtained from the Herefordshire FA.

How to get Involved

Small sided football is the perfect way to get your midweek football fix! Take part in one of our fun, flexible and competitive 6 a-side leagues!

There are a couple of different small sided operators organising 6aside competitions in Herefordshire. All are affiliated to The FA or to the Herefordshire Football Association.
