Small Sided team

Small Sided


There are nearly 30,000 small sided teams playing across the country. This significant figure is continuing to grow and expand at a rapid rate and it is anticipated that the number of small sided football teams will overtake the number of adult male 11 v 11 teams.

Small sided football is identified in the National Game Strategy as one of The FA’s key growth targets for adult football. The popularity of this format of football is a reaction to changing work and leisure patterns and a move towards ‘pay and play’ football.

Small sided football is the most popular and fastest growing area of adult football, and there’s plenty of ways to get involved through Birmingham FA.

Birmingham FA has been at the heart of the small sided revolution and we work hard to develop opportunities for players to participate right on their doorstep.

We appreciate that the traditional formats of the game are not for everyone and you need football to fit around your busy schedule.

So whether you want a great way of getting an ‘after work’ run out with your mates, or you like the idea of playing fast and competitive midweek football... The Small Sided game is perfect choice for you!
