What is flexi-football?
Flexi-football is an informal version of the game. Fixtures will be 50 minutes long, (Two 25-minute halves) 11-a-side and will follow regular FA Laws of the Game. These laws will be enforced by FA qualified referees, which we will provide for every fixture. Teams can have up to 5 subs which can be used on a roll-on, roll-off basis. There is also no limit on squad side so teams can have as many players registered as they want, as long as they are male and aged 16 years or above they can get involved. 

When will the league start and what time are kick-offs?
The league will launch on Friday 7 June 2019 and will run throughout June, July and early August. Kick-off times will be 18:30, 19:30 and 20:30. This will be dependent on how many teams enter.
