BBFA5League to launch at Ryeish Green

The Berks & Bucks FA will be launching their first regular small-sided league this summer at Ryeish Green in Wokingham.

The Berks & Bucks FA recognises the important role that small-sided football plays in encouraging people to continue to participate in football regularly. Now Berks & Bucks FA will be launching its own small-sided league to offer players a high standard of football at a low cost. The inaugural BBFA5League will take place on a new 3G astro-turf pitch, officiated by FA qualified referees, and a variety of leagues ensures that individuals can participate against players of similar ability.

Berks & Bucks FA Innovation Manager Jon Wood explained the launch; “Small-sided football has long been viewed as the fastest growing and most popular area of adult football, and we are keen to ensure that players and teams participating in this format of football have access to a high quality service. We would also like to see closer links between small-sided leagues and local 11 a-side leagues to support the retention of players, and make it easier for them to transition between the formats.”

The Leagues at Ryeish Green will take place on a Monday evening, with optional kick-off times between 19:00 – 20:30. If you are interested in entering a team please complete a team registration, alternatively if you have any queries then please contact Jon Wood on 01235 544898 or email jonathan.wood@berks-bucksfa.com.  

Unlike other small sided providers any profit from the league is put back into football development within the local area.
