5s came alive in
September 2018

2 pals who felt the pain shared by many small – sided football league players, opened their gates to their first league at Hove Park on September 30th, 2018. Jake and Charlie have played in and been involved in football for over 15 years, having played in a 11-a-side and 5-a-side teams since they were kids.

Growing up, they were frustrated with the standard of football leagues across the county through things like high fees, poor equipment, substandard refs, teams dropping out every week and a general lack of organisation, so they decided to take it upon themselves to create something more enjoyable.

The team at 5s aim to provide a different experience. At these unique leagues, players will be able to watch their matches as every game is recorded. Also, selected leagues offer cash prizes and 5s invest in top quality equipment and experienced referees. This is all tied together with a league manager who oversees every session to make sure it all runs smoothly and is available off the pitch, throughout the week for questions and issues.
