The game for everyone

Five-a-side football is the fastest growing sport in Australia. Each team fields five players (four outfield players and a goalkeeper), with matches played on a smaller pitch, with smaller goals and a shorter game duration.

Matches can be played indoors or outdoors on a range of surfaces, which may be enclosed to prevent the ball from leaving the playing area. A modified, constantly flowing format, with exciting, high-possession football, great for beginners right through to elite players.

With mixed, male and female competitions, you'll find the perfect match for anyone aged from 6 to 60.
