Business League

Get Fit, Get Active, Build Team Rapport

Following on from the huge success of last year’s Business League, which attracted 30 teams from across the county. We are back and open for business.

We are pleased to announce that the business league will be launching for 2017 on 1st February with four divisions North Birmingham, South Birmingham, Black Country and Coventry Solihull Warwickshire.

The business league is the ideal opportunity for work based teams who wanted to play 11-a-side football at a competitive level but struggled due to work based commitments. Shorter matches, flexible timings, and shared costs allow businesses of all shapes and sizes to get involved. The league brought back a competitive edge with businesses battling it out to be named the best business team in the county.

The league engaged over 500 participants from a variety of sites and staff rooms, earning it national recognition, accolade from The Football Association, and nomination for ‘Sporting Initiative of the Year’ at the first Birmingham Awards. Last year the league attracted business giants such as British Gas, Jaguar Land Rover, Mercedes Benz, Royal Mail and Deutsche Bank, to local City Councils, schools, and small Birmingham businesses.

The Business League will start in February and this is how it works:
  • One game per month to be played whenever convenient for both teams.
  • Home team to sort pitch and inform opposition of venue and cost
  • Games minimum of 50 minutes
  • Match day squad of 17
  • Roll on roll off subs
  • Both teams to cover the cost of the referee
  • Referee will be appointed by County FA
  • Fixtures, results and tables updated by County FA
  • £10 Entry per team
Here what some businesses had to say about last years league.

Vicarage Court Solicitors “The league has encouraged about 6/7 of our players back in to the game. Some of whom have not played 11 a side for approximately, 10 years plus. “

British Gas“Everyone loved it and the 50 min game is just about right for us old folk.”

Sandwell Council “Great format, we enjoyed our first game and can’t wait for the next one. The flexibility to arrange your own fixtures over a certain period of time is also beneficial given work and family commitments for many players"
