Small Sided Leagues

Get involved in the small sided game!

Small Sided Football is the most popular and fastest growing area of adult football. With over 1.5m adults playing Small Sided Football every week and with 30,000 teams playing in organised and competitive small sided leagues, this format of football has increasingly become an integral part of the football family. 

Oxfordshire FA recognises the important role that Small Sided Football plays in encouraging people to continue playing football and enjoying all aspects of the ‘beautiful game.’

Just as with 11-a-side football, all small-sided teams and leagues must be affiliated to their County FA to reap the benefits on offer. Affiliation for small-sided football is via a ‘slot’ system.  The cost of affiliation is per slot (which is equal to 1 team) per 1 year season is £5 per slot/team. This covers the team for 12 months. Small sided leagues must purchase their own public liability insurance. 

Benefits of Affiliation
