Soccer is passion. Played, lived and loved by more players and fans than any other sport on the planet. And 5-a-side soccer has its own special brand of passion. Fast, intensive, exciting, it’s the game suitable for just about any age and any ability. It’s also the perfect focus for any small group of friends who just want to play.

The English FA says participation rates in the small sided game have overtaken and far exceeded 11-a-side. You don’t need to spend all of your time recruiting a 15 person roster, you get many more touches on the ball and whether you’re a beginner or advanced player, you will develop your touch and passing abilities much quicker.

Four Plus One was created by a group of people who love the 5-a-side game, believe in it’s power to help grow the sport in the US and want to get as many people playing it as possible.

Unlike most other leagues, Four Plus One believes in playing within a purpose built ‘cage’ or enclosed pitch with boards around the edge. This is to keep the ball constantly moving (strictly below head height!) and to encourage the intense feeling that 5-a-side soccer gives. You won’t find any cones or pug goals here!

Four Plus One is also affiliated with Chicago’s WCW FA which means you can expect quality, fun and tons of opportunities to play the game! Whether you have a Coed or Men’s team (Women’s coming soon!) or are an individual, we have a spot for you on great purpose built 5-a-side courts in leagues, tournaments and pickup games! Four Plus One adheres to the English FA’s 5-a-side rules with certain WCW FA league modifications.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
