Come play 5-a-side football every Sunday on a 4G pitch in Shoreditch. We play come rain or shine, and we go out for drinks/food in a local pub after the games.
The format of the games is simple: 5 teams of 5/6 players taking part in a round robin tournament. Due to the increased popularity of the group (we often have people on the waiting list), we won't accept people who take less than 30s to answer the questions on their profile, sorry but according to our experience that tells a lot about future commitment! We will also have to remove or ban for a couple of games any member who pulls out from a session last minute or who show aggressive behaviour on the pitch. We really want to only have committed and friendly members in the group i.e. people who respect rules and people! This is why we do not have as many members as some other football meetup groups. Not everyone can join, as simple as that.
We also organise tournaments opened to everyone (therefore the name of the group), the last one had 54 attendees, with 9 teams of 6 players, and it was a lot of fun!
YOU SHOULD HAVE PLAYED AT LEAST 10 YEARS OF FOOTBALL in your life to join this group, so have at least an intermediate (ideally advanced) level, just so that you make the most of it as our members are rather competitive, even for a Sunday afternoon! We have created another football group for beginners/intermediate players who would like to improve their skills or even just learn how to play football: https://www.meetup.com/5asideforall-beginnerintermediate.
