5s Football

Intramural 5s football is all about close-knit teams, spending lots of time on-ball, and a healthy dose of competition.

Weekly 5s leagues 

Each player requires a MINIMUM of the SPORT membership to gain entry to the Centre and play in the League 

Where and when

League teams can register for either the Tuesday 17.00-18.30 or Tuesday 18.30-20.00 league.

All games are played indoors at Newcastle University Sport & Fitness Centre in Sports Hall 2.

League format

16 teams take part in two divisions of eight every Tuesday evening.

Fixtures are 40 minutes long. Teams play each other once, with a minimum of seven games per team. Once all the league fixtures have been played, the top four teams from each division qualify for the knockout play-offs.

All games are assigned Northumberland FA qualified referees with each team required to pay a weekly £6 referee.

At the end of each term, the winning team comes away with a shiny crystal trophy, medals and a voucher for the team. As well as a place in Intramural history.

Leagues reset at the beginning of each term.
